Engaging the community

Sarajevo Open Centre in addition to its advocacy efforts and activities in the field of LGBTI rights, continues to work directly with the LGBTI community in order for people to socialize and empower themselves, as well as learn about their legal rights.

We have been working even more intensively through various series of social gatherings in order to empower, share information and provide legal and other counselling.

  • Work with the LGBTI community – we continue to gather LGBTI community in a safe place. Through these social gatherings we host activists and speakers from the region and Europe.
  • Web portal – LGBTI.ba is a BiH virtual space, intended for the broader public, as well as for the LGBTI community, which offers current multimedia content on the life of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people but also information on LGBTI culture, public policy and law.
  • Legal Aid and Counselling – LGBTI people are provided with place and people they can turn to in cases of discrimination and / or violence based on sexual orientation, gender identity and sex characteristics. Through this service we provide support in the process of implementation of their rights through free legal advice.
  • Psychological counselling – Sarajevo Open Centre in collaboration with specialist partner organization, liaise between LGBTI people that come to us and sensitized psychologists, by  establishing contacts between LGBTI people who come for a talk, and who would like to deepen the discussion or seek psychological counselling.  For more information on this service, do not hesitate to write to [email protected]
