Queer Network Meeting in Rome during the Europride

The first ECOSY Queer Network meeting of the new mandate took place in Rome from the 9th till the 12th of June during the events of the Europride thanks to the hospitality of GD Italy.

Activists of the SJ and VSStÖ Austria, SSU Sweden, JS Portugal, DSU Denmark, Mladi Forum Slovenia and Young Meretz Israel participated in workshops and conferences on different topics such as Pride activism and campaigning, the legislation against Homophobia in Italy and the issue of Europe at two different speeds on the fight for civil rights -especially LGBT rights- through the European Union. You can see the pictures of the workshops here!

The Young European Socialists also took part of the parade together with the comrades of GD Italy under the slogan "Born This Way".

This was for sure a great mixture of political activism and fun!
