Finding a Voice for Sexual Minority Rights (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Indigenous/Two-Spirit, and Queer). Some Comprehensive Policy Considerations
Hill, Robert J.
Convergence, v40 n3-4 p169-179 2007
At the invitation of UNESCO in 1997, more than 1,500 representatives of governments and non-governmental organizations attended the Fifth International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA V) in Hamburg, Germany. They laid out a strategy for lifelong learning that omitted rights for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender, Two Spirit, and Queer people to learn to be, to become, and to belong. At the close of CONFINTEA V, the Rapporteur-General of the Conference declared the need to increase the capacity of all non traditional actors to participate actively in adult learning opportunities. This never occurred for sexual minorities in most regions of the world. CONFINTEA VI is an opportunity to remedy this unfulfilled promise. (Contains 4 notes.)
