Every two months, the magazine will explore the work of women leading ILGA World member organisations and offer insights into how LBTIQ women have historically pushed for change. It will also highlight the dedicated advocacy work of ILGA World, and list some opportunities for funding directed to LBTIQ groups.
ILGA Word’s Women Committee is currently chaired by Cristina González Hurtado (from the member organisation Corporación Femm; Colombia), and formed by Sandra Kwikiriza (Fem Alliance Uganda, Uganda), Brenda Rodriguez Alegre (STRAP – Society of Trans Women Philippines; Philippines), Teresa Fernandez (Red de Mujeres Lesbianas y Bisexuales; Cuba), Maria Nailevu (Pacific Sexual and Gender Diversity Network; Tonga), and Winnie Luk (Rainbow Railroad; Canada), while the position of representative for Europe and Central Asia is currently vacant.
