The project aims to promote lesbian, gay, transsexual and intersex (LGBTI) people’s meaningful participation in peacebuilding efforts relating to the Colombian Peace Agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and other ongoing conflicts.

Project activities include: (1) documenting conflict-related violence against LGBTI people in Colombia; (2) providing educational talks and psychosocial support to empower victims and bring awareness of the impact of conflict-related violence on LGBTI people; (3) providing political, technical and administrative support to grassroots peacebuilding initiatives that are developed and led by young women’s lesbian, bisexual, trans and intersex organizations; and (4) supporting a learning exchange to Canada in order to collaborate with LGBTI groups outside of the country.
