Event - Sexual Minorities and Development in Latin America (2014)

February 6, 2014

On January 28th, 2014, the World Bank hosted its first “Brown Bag Lunch” on sexual minorities in the development agenda. The Latin America and Caribbean Poverty, Gender and Equity Group joined a project sponsored by the Nordic Trust Fund to discuss lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in the LAC region. A host of experts explained the contradiction for sexual minorities: as more countries enact national and international LGBT laws, violence and discrimination are prolific.
