The ILGA World Conference 2022 will be held under the theme LGBTIQ youth: future present change, from 2 to 6 May 2022 in Los Angeles, CA, United States.
Change: our world has never needed this more than we do now. Social injustice and economic disparities are contributing to the inequalities that cut across our world. LGBTIQ communities have always stepped-up in times of crisis, and we are again called to bring radical, positive change to support and protect our communities.
LGBTIQ youth are key to this much-needed change. They are a positive force to our movements and our world: not just for the future, but right now.
From climate justice to feminism, from disabilities to anti-racism, fighting gender-based violence and LGBTIQ oppression and discrimination, youth are a powerful part of social justice movements. They mobilise millions, speak truth to power, weave intergenerational and intersectional alliances, and make space to also speak for themselves. This is why the ILGA World Conference 2022 will focus on the power of LGBTIQ youth for the whole global movement. LGBTIQ youth are our future. They are also our present. And together we can change the world.
