LGBTQI youth in the Council of Europe region hails from diverse ethnic, racial, and religious backgrounds. IGLYO is aware of the intertwined realities of racism, LGBTQI-phobia, sexism, classism, ableism, and ageism that are part of the lived experiences of LGBTQI youth of colour. Due to this imperative, IGLYO Members demonstrated their commitment by voting at the Annual Members' Conference 2023 to establish an Anti-Racism Panel as a body of the organisation.
We are currently looking for 3 BIPOC LGBTQI young people to join our paid Anti-Racism Panel from March 2024 to the IGLYO AMC 2026. Each panel member will respectively be responsible for one of IGLYO's 3 key domains of activity: Advocacy & Research, Programmes, and Communications & Network (one panel member per domain). The work of Anti-Racism Panel Members is compensated with €2000 per year for an estimated workload of 40 Hrs/Year.

*BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, (and) People of Color and has been used as a commonplace term to group together diverse and different communities that may not necessarily have anything in common other than a shared yet unique experience of discrimination along ethnic, racial, and/or colonial axis of domination, and that the use of such term isn't meant to erase the richness of racial and ethnic diversity but to refer to individuals and communities affected by racism, colorism, and/or xenophobia when considering large-scale phenomena and structures of power.
