In 2017, the so called “marriage for all” was recognized in Germany. However, there can still be no question of full equality of LGBTI* rights. According to the ILGA Rainbow Europe Report 2018, Germany ranks only 12th in Europe. Above all in the area of ​​trans* and inter* rights there is still need for action.

But what about the global situation of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trans* and intersex people (LGBTI*)? Where are sexual orientation and gender identities recognized apart from heteronormativity? What protection is there against discrimination? And in which countries are LGBTI* people criminalized and even threatened with the death penalty? In this panel discussion, Amina Sboui, Julia Ehrt and Boris Dittrich discuss with Barbara Unmüßig the situation of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trans* and intersex* people
