Report by ISS student Zara Shushanyan (Major: Social Justice Perspectives)

The International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) Youth and Student Organization (IGLYO) brought together last week more than forty young LGBTQ people and human rights activists to the “Keep the Faith” Conference held in Brussels, Belgium.

Organized in partnership with the European Youth Foundation and the Brussels Ministry of Equal Opportunities, the conference was an attempt to create safe space for LGBTQ young people to resolve faith-and-culture-based conflicts through intercultural and inter-religious dialogue.
