Research report

This research is an attempt to map the current situation, everyday needs and problems of women overcoming heteronormativity. In this sense, this analysis is also an important contribution to the study of the anthropology of everyday life of lesbian, bisexual and transgender women, as it provides valuable material for the study of the social life of women who, as a group, have their gender, sexual and sexual difference in relation to the majority.

As you will have the opportunity to see, the goal of the analysis was to show the real needs and attitudes of LBT women, and in line with this, the topics dealt with include: outbursts, discrimination and violence against LBT women, their trust in BiH institutions, economic position of LBT women, and views on same-sex communities and their legal regulation.

The realization of this important research was financially supported by the European Commission through a project called Time is Now, implemented by the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights of the Republic of Macedonia and ERA – LGBTI Equal Rights Association for the Western Balkans and Turkey in partnership with 13 LGBTI organizations from Europe.
