The purpose of the project is to build on the European Forum’s experiences in advocating on behalf of LGBT Christian groups and to increase its capacity for conducting strategic, sustained advocacy work that integrates all aspects of the organizations’ work (including institutional development, coalition-building, counteracting fundamentalism, advocacy at the level of the European institutions). Planning and systematizing the advocacy work is ultimately intended to empower the European Forum to conduct more effective, more proactive advocacy in combating religious based homophobia.

Within this project, the European Forum wants to resource LGBT and LGBT Faith non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and groups to monitor and combat religion-based intolerance in countries from Eastern Europe. Thereby, it works to tackle religion-based homophobia and related forms of intolerance in Europe.
