3 February 2016, Elbasan – PINK Embassy / LGBT Pro Albania with the support of the European Union and in cooperation with Elbasan University “Aleksander Xhuvani” held an open lecture with the participation of more than 100 students majoring in education. The event was held in the framework of the initiative “Improving the lives of LGBT community at local level’ who has travelled in at least six cities of the country and its universities organizing open lectures.

The lecture focused on sharing information for students on LGBTI concepts, sexual orientation, gender identity, transgender and intersex rights etc. Further they managed to discuss on challenges LGBTI people face in many countries including Albania especially in relation to the acceptance and respect of sexual and gender diversity.

Questions from participants focused on bullying, orientation, offering new social and cultural models and the difficulties of accepting this community in mainstream society.
