Il Grande Colibrì is an activism project in favour of LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersexual) people. Its purpose is to bring out and tell how the other differences are important (ethnic, nationality, culture, religion, social, relationship, sexual, etc), which are connected with sexual orientation and gender identity.
We want to break the wall of silence and prejudice which hit who is not considered a part of the majority in the society. We want go over the stereotypical and superficial concept of the minorities, give a voice to who has ignored or hushed up. We want to combat all the form of prejudice (homophobia, transphobia, racism, islamophobia, antisemitism, sexophobia, stigmatization of poverty and illness, etc).
The people who take part in the project are very different to each other (some of us are bisexual or heterosexual, gay, lesbian or queer; we are african, asian and european; agnostic, atheist, christian, muslim; etc). We are united by the respect to all differences, and by the pleasure of sharing them to each other.
This blog provides news, insights and testimonies, and we guarantee a real work to give you correct and complete information, in full respect of all the people, avoiding sensationalisms and semplifications.
The purpose is to understand and make you understand those realities which appear distance, keep channel of comprehension and communication open, provides useful interpretative instruments for an efficient action in the service of eguality.
