Mark this Friday, 30 October in your calendars for the first introduction to a greater international audience of ERA – the regional association of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer organizations from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, fYR Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey.

The launch will be held from 18:00 to 19:30 at room Olympia at Divani Caravel Hotel, Athens, as part of the programme of the ILGA Europe Annual Conference happening these days. It will be formatted as a discussion forum, while introductory speeches will be made by Dragana Todorovic, Amarildo Fecanji and Antonio Mihajlov.
