Support for projects working with racialised LGBTI communities in Europe

ILGA-Europe launched a new call for applications for projects working with racialised LGBTI communities in Europe within the framework of a new 12-months programme which aims to support 15 organisations’ work on socio-economic justice for racialised LGBTI communities through a combination of grants and regular peer learning.

Deadline: 2 April 2023
Grant amount: €15,000 to €20,000

Programme structure

The program has two interconnected components:

  • Financial support for the implementation of a project which should be implemented within a period of 12 months. The programme runs from 1 June 2023 until 1 June 2024.
  • Learning and networking that will bring grantees together on a regular basis to exchange learning, share challenges and solutions, build solidarity and find points for collaboration and inspiration. Peer-learning meetings will happen on-line on a regular basis, approximately every six weeks during the project period. Over the course of 12 months, there will be up to eight meetings (up to three hours each).

Applicants under this call can commit to both components of this program.


LGBTI-run organisations and initiative groups in Europe:

  • that have a history and track record of practice of working with and for racialised LGBTI communities
  • where racialised LGBTI communities are part of the organisational structure (this is a mandatory requirement)
  • that have some experience of working on socio-economic effects and lived experiences of racialised LGBTI communities (this is desirable, but not a requirement.

Non-registered organisations are eligible to apply, but must partner with a registered legal entity that is able to receive funds from ILGA-Europe. This entity cannot be a physical person.

For a full list of countries go here.

Projects that will fall into one or both of the following areas of work:

  • Evidence-based awareness raising and mobilisation work that focuses on the forms and scope of the impact intersectional marginalisation and structural oppressions have on the socio-economic status and opportunities for racialised LGBTI people.
  • Developing/strengthening collaboration with service providers and/or other partners working on socio-economic justice with the explicit purpose of fair distribution of labour amongst the actors in this field.

Application and submission

Proposals should be submitted using an application form and budget template.

Applications and question regarding proposals should be sent via email to grants@ilga-europe.org
