European IDAHOT+ Forum 2022 - EFPN

Event Information

IDAHOT+ Forum 2022 | Limassol | May 12

The European Governmental LGBTI Focal Points Network’s (EFPN) IDAHOT+ Forum finally returns this year with a live event on 12 May 2022 in the city of Limassol, Cyprus. This long-awaited reunion is co-hosted by the Republic of Cyprus and the UK Governments, with the support of the Council of Europe’s SOGI Unit. 

The annual IDAHOT+ Forum aims to strengthen cooperation and understanding on LGBTI+ politics between European Governments, International Governmental Organisations, International Civil Society Organisations, Businesses, Academics, and key stakeholders.

As the main European event where governments and key stakeholders meet to assess the progress of LGBTI+ rights in the continent, celebrate achievements and set new goals, the event is highly anticipated by many. Each time, the organisation of the Forum is carried out by different EFPN-member governments allowing the discussions on LGBTI+ matters to reach government departments that could otherwise be difficult to reach. 

The event will cover:


 The European Civil Society Organisations will present the State of LGBTI+ Rights in Europe in 2022, through their annual maps: 

  • ILGA-Europe – Rainbow Index 2022
  • TGEU - Trans Rights Map of Europe & Central Asia 2022
  • OII – Good Practice Map
  • IGLYO - 2nd LGBTQI Inclusive Education Map, Index & Report
