GALE school toolkit2011, 98 pages.

GALE Toolkit Working with Schools 1.0. Tools for school consultants, principals, teachers, students and parents to integrate adequate attention of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender topics in curricula and school policies.

Until now, it is very rare to see mainstream organizations focus on LGBT issues in schools. Most initiatives to improve our schools are initiated by LGBT grass roots organizations or professional organizations which are rooted in the LGBT movements. That is why this version of the toolkit focuses in part on suggestions for activist organizations on how to access schools. However, just 'dropping' information and model curricula in schools and hoping school will use them, usually does not work. To make sure the tools for schools are tuned into the needs and possibilities of a school, and of an adequate quality to ensure a significant effect, we need to work with the schools themselves. It is this LGBT & straight collaboration we are focusing with in this toolkit.

The toolkit has five parts:
1. Project implementation tools
2. Tools for managers and authorities
3. Tools for staff
4. Tools for students
5. Tools for parent

Oslo konferenceJune 2013, 68 pages

15 and 16 April 2013, South Africa and Norway co-­?chaired an international conference on Human Rights, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in Oslo, Norway. The Conference gathered more than 200 participants from 84 countries of all regions of the world.

In all countries of the world, individuals are subjected to discrimination and violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity. In order to gather information from all regions, the Oslo conference was preceded by regional seminars in Kathmandu, Paris and Brasilia, in addition to several civil society events in the African region.

Drawing upon these regional seminars, the concluding international conference in Oslo identified key challenges and implementation gaps and summed up lessons learnt, best practices and possible solutions to addressing these human rights violations in a more coherent and systematic manner.

Skrmbillede 2013-11-27 kl. 10.18.372012, 126 pages

Inspirational publication on the development of LGBTI organisations.

Over the years, the many people involved in this sector have gathered an enormous wealth of implicit knowledge on how these organisations work, how they relate to each other and how they develop themselves. This publication captures some of their practices and will make their organisational lessons learnt more explicit. Making these lessons more accessible will support practitioners who are involved in one way or another in the development of LGBTI organisations, whether they be activists, funders, capacity enhancers, networkers, programmers, lobbyists or whichever other role or combinations of roles.

One of the chapters deals specifically with LGBTI people and organisations in a hostile environment.
