As the 2021 Rainbow Europe Map reveals widespread and almost complete stagnation on human rights of LGBTI people, we are at a juncture when governments can actively choose the right way forward, says leading LGBTI rights organisation, ILGA-Europe.
ILGA-Europe‘s ‘Annual Review 2021‘ shows that as a result of the unprecedented events of 2020, LGBTI people and communities in Europe have been pushed to the brink.
ILGA-Europe, Europe‘s umbrella for LGBTQI umbrella organisations, publishes each year its Rainbow Map and Rainbow Index ranking 49 European countries. 2020 is doomed to be coupled to the coronavirus COVID-19 crisis, which also influences the situation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex people.
“With a lot of pain in our hearts we have to inform you that, as a consequence of the coronavirus COVID-19 crisis, we are cancelling this year’s cruise”, La Démence says in a communiqué.
The Cruise, also known as La Démence Cruise will sail from 5 tot 12 July 2020 on Royal Caribbean‘s Explorer of the Seas.
