We’re looking for 1 group leader for the catalan group for the youth exchange called “Queer Summer Camp” that will take place from the 2nd to the 10th of July 2024 in the beautiful place called “La Città dell’Utopia” located in Rome.

About the project
The LGBTIQ+ community is constantly exposed to a strong LGBTIQA+fobia (directly or indirectly) that causes stress, trauma, loneliness, isolation, lack of self esteem, anxiety, etc. Young LGBTIQ+ people are especially vulnerable to that and face additional difficulties such as rejection from their own families, distrust in opening up with others (which makes it difficult to make friends and or to find peers in similar situations), discrimination and bullying during school years, and so on.

There is a need for safe spaces where LGBTIQ+ youngsters* can share experiences and feelings, explore reality and themselves through different artistic methods, improve their leadership skills and create a stronger community consciousness that promotes diversity and civil engagement for an active citizenship.

*(We define as LGBTIQ+ youngsters those who identify with one or more categories inside the acronym LGBTIQA+. We are talking about persons who suffered or are suffering discrimination
because of their sexual orientation, sexuality, gender expression or gender identity).

Activity dates
1. Online meeting organized on April 2024.
