What Dreilinden does
The world over, people whose sexual orientation, gender identity and expression and sex characteristics (SOGIESC for short) do not conform with social norms experience severe discrimination and violence. Their human rights are not effectively protected. All too often, they are threatened in their physical and psychological integrity. Women and girls are subject to multiple forms of discrimination. And often, gender based discrimination is linked with other forms of exclusion, such as poverty, racism and/or disability. Dreilinden is driven by the firm belief that all those forms of discrimination need to end.
Not only to alleviate suffering, but out of the conviction that human societies are more liveable and stronger if binary gender roles are less fixed, and less hierarchically ordered.
Women, girls, and LSBTI (lesbians, gays, bisexual, trans* and inter*) people have the same human rights as everyone else! All human beings have much to gain if their personal development can include their sexuality and their gender preference. Thus, our treatment of gender and gender variance is a mirror of our society’s humanity.
