The Minister of Equality, Social Policies and Conciliation, Rocío Ruiz, presented the campaing in Torremolinos on Wednesday January 20, and the aim is to raise awareness of the rights of LGTBI people in Andalucia.

Charo Alises, second vice president of the Andalusian LGTBI Council said, “We want this brochure to be an information and awareness tool that can be used by LGTBI people and their families, by society itself in general and by the Public Administration itself to avoid cases of discrimination and prevent attitudes and behaviors of LGTBI-phobia”.

According to data in the most recent report, incidences of hate speech against Andalucia’s LGTBI community rose by 7 per cent during the 2019-2020 time frame. Ruiz, said that with her role comes “the duty to promote policies and actions that guarantee the exercise of equality rights”, and that the leaflets and the campaign will help with the “the normalization and consolidation of full and effective social equality of LGTBI people and their families”.
