With over 40 member groups from more than 20 countries in Europe, the European Forum works for freedom of religion for LGBTI+ people, for human rights, for the dignity of LGBTI+ people, and for an affirmative discourse on human sexuality.
The Board of the European Forum consists of six people. Using the button below, can you find out more about our current Board.

It all originated in 1982 when Emile Letertre, a priest and member of the French lgbt group David & Jonathan, intuited that if he asked some of his friends from England, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands to meet in Paris they could start something urgently needed. Sixteen people responded, and the following year, in 1983, seven groups were present at the first annual meeting in Strasbourg, a highly symbolic place and a meeting full of promises.
