The Portuguese Association for Victim Support and ILGA (International Lesbian and Gay Association) Portugal signed in Lisbon, on May 17th, a protocol which firms institutional cooperation between these two entities, within the scope of the rights, protection and support to victims of crime and violence.

The signature was held precisely on the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. The protocol will enable mutual collaboration in actions and projects of victim support, joint technical support and the promotion of specialized services for victims with special protection and support needs.

Through the LGBT Center and LGBT Victim Support Service (telephone and information line), ILGA Portugal has been supporting victims of violence, hate crimes and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity for many years.
