The European branch of the International Lesbian and Gay Association will stage its annual conference in Vienna this year Oct. 30 to Nov. 2.
“The theme … is ‘Think globally, act locally,’ and reflects the work of ILGA-Europe and its members on advocating for international human rights standards and practices and their implementation at the local level,” the group said.
The Council of Europe’s commissioner for human rights, Thomas Hammarberg, will take part in the gathering, and Austrian President Heinz Fischer and Chancellor Alfred Gusenbauer are serving as honorary organizers.
