LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queer, Intersex or Asexual)

The struggle and mobilization of the LGBTQIA+ community has resulted in important advances in recent years, such as the creation of the National Council for Combating Discrimination (CNCD / LGBT) and the recognition by the Supreme Court (STF) of stable same-sex unions. However, we still have many challenges to face to ensure full citizenship for all.

In cases of LGBTQIA-phobic violence, you can contact:

  • the Human Rights Violation Hotline (dial: 100) or you can file a complaint through the site by filling out an online form;
  • Any organization related to LGBTQIA+ rights;
  • Go to a police station (there are stations that specialize in hate crimes, but you need to check the website of your state’s police station to find out where there is the one closest to you);
  • Look for the Federal Public Defender’s Office.

For more information, please refer to the section on safety or access our booklet on the rights of LGBTQIA+ asylum seekers and refugees.
