Rather than a working group, Colombia Diversa is a team of people who every day put their hearts and knowledge at the service of the defense of a country free of discrimination, exclusion and peace. They are professionals in areas such as law, anthropology, social work, communication, accounting and administration, among others.

Mission

Colombia Diversa is a non-governmental organization that has been fighting for the rights of those who have been discriminated for loving, being or appearing "different" since 2004. In order to live in an equal society for all, we develop strategic litigation, advocacy and research on human rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people in Colombia.

Back in the days when it was an utopia to dream of equal marriage or adoption, legal guarantees for same-sex couples or expressing affection in public without being discriminated against, among other things, there was a group of people who believed in the dream of a free, equal and equal Colombia for all LGBT people. That is how Colombia Diversa was born.

Values

In order to achieve full recognition and respect for the rights of LGBT people in Colombia, we work with respect, professionalism, transparency, political independence and work in alliance with organizations that promote our work and inclusion.
