An insightful online programme to celebrate Pride Week


Pride Week is right around the corner! For this occasion, IGLYO is thrilled to have joined forces with our colleagues at the Organising Bureau of European School Student Unions  (OBESSU) to prepare a series of not-to-miss online sessions from 24 to 26 May 2022!

These sessions are aimed to inform and build the skills of participants so as to help them develop their tools and understanding of LGBTQI issues, and mainstream inclusion and intersectionality within their organisation. The programme will range from interactive networking sessions to workshops on Consent, Allyship, Trans/intersex youth and LGBTQI Youth Advocacy.

Full Online Programme


24 May 2022

15:45 – 16:00 CEST | Opening
Welcome from the Pride Week Organisers

16:00 – 17:00 CEST | Basic Information Workshop
A conversation about who we are and how we categorise others, what LGBTQI means, and other interesting concepts.

17:15 – 18:15 CEST | Networking Session
Everything is easier if we do it together, and in order to do so, let’s get to know each other a bit better! In this space, we will hear more about the situation on LGBTQI youth activism from LGBTQI youth activists from around Europe and share ideas about how we can work together towards change.


25 May 2022

16:00 – 17:00 CEST | Consent Workshop
Let’s share ideas on and learn about how we enjoy (or not) relationships and sex, and how we can gain control over them rather than they controlling us.

17:15 – 18:15 CEST | Allyship Workshop
We can all do more than just observe from the side. Let’s find out more about how we can each get involved.


26 May 2022

16:00 – 17:00 CEST | Trans/Intersex Youth Workshop
What is the difference between social and medical transition? Is it possible for gender to be fluid? What does being intersex mean? How can I be respectful towards trans and intersex communities? Let’s answer these questions together with trans and intersex activists from kolekTIRV.

17:15 – 18:15 CEST | Advocacy session
What’s the situation for young LGBTQI people in the EU and what have we learned from IGLYO’s latest report on Inclusive Education? This session will be a discussion gathering some young LGBTQI activists members of OBESSU and IGLYO from different regions to report on the situation in their countries.

18:15 – 18:30 CEST | Advocacy Demands Presentations
Presentation of advocacy demands developed throughout the week by participants

18:30 – 19:00 CEST | Closing party
