LGBTI Activists Seek to Gauge Commitments on Legislation

MONTEVIDEO – Activists from seven Ibero-American countries opened a conference Thursday seeking to create standards by which to gauge institutional commitment to legislation favoring lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and intersexual, or LGBTI, people in their societies.

“We’ll try to create ways to measure compliance with institutional commitments, because there are very important statements about actions and political commitments, but nobody is gauging to what extent they are implemented,” Ibero-American LGBTI Education Network representative Jose Maria Nuñez Blanco told EFE.

Participants from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Spain, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay will seek to share experiences and devise activities with a regional scope.

“There is a disparity between progress in some countries and others,” Nuñez said.

“There are countries with very advanced legislation but also little educational effort, and there are others where legislation is not so progressive but the educational effort is more diversified,” Nuñez said.

There is a need “for clear analysis of reality and what the situation is, because we do not know in detail,” Nuñez said.

Conferences of this kind “are important gatherings to share experiences, to learn about social realities and advances in this field,” the Social Development Ministry’s national director for sociocultural promotion, Federico Graña, told EFE.
