Description

The Québec Government Office in Boston and the Consulate General of Canada in Boston, in partnership with MassEquality, are hosting a webinar, the final in a 3 part series. It will discuss the important work done by Canada, the United States, subnational governments, and NGOs in advocating on behalf of LGBTQ2+ people around the world.  In this conversation we will also hear firsthand from LGBTQ2+ diplomats on their experience serving abroad and advancing LGBTQ2+ rights internationally.  With an eye towards the future, panelists will share their thoughts on the current state of LGBTQ2+ rights globally, and how the practice of LGBTQ2+ diplomacy will shift in the coming years.
