The New York Irish Center, in association with Front Line Defenders and co-hosted by by Outright Action International and OHCHR, invites all to the latest installment of our “The Story Continues” series.

Since 2017 this free program has offered insightful conversation and social networking for the LGBTQ community.

Our quarterly program invites vital voices to share their stories against the backdrop of wine, conversation and DJ Spin Diva.

This next installment is an interactive conversation with LGBTQ+ activists, all winners of the 2019 Front Line Defenders Award for Human Rights Defenders at Risk:

Badr Baabou - Tunisa
Rosanna Marzán - Dominican Republic
Veronika Lapina - Russia
Shinta Ratri - Indonesia
Nyasa Rainbow Alliance - Malawi

Moderated by Orla Tinsley

Front Line Defenders was founded in Dublin in 2001 with the specific aim of protecting human rights defenders at risk (HRDs), people who work, non-violently, for any or all of the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Front Line Defenders addresses the protection needs identified by HRDs themselves.
