LGBTI in Politics
"We must all speak against homophobia, we cannot shy away from it." said Finnish Ambasador Anne Meskanen on her opening speech in the conference LGBT in Politics organized by local NGO CSGD. The conference was supported by the Ministry of European Integration and the Finnish Embassy in Kosovo, and gathered representatives from different public institutions as well as civil society. Moreover, it was the first conference to host a debate within the main political parties such as PDK and VV. The conference was well covered by the media and sparked a public debate over the issue.
