About the Háttér Society
Háttér Society, founded in 1995, is the largest and oldest currently operating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) organization in Hungary. Its aims are calling attention to the problems faced by LGBTQI people; providing support services; exploring the situation and needs of LGBTQI people; mainstreaming these concerns in laws and public services; protecting the human rights of LGBTQI people and countering discrimination against them; promoting the health and well-being of LGBTQI people; encouraging the self-organization of LGBTQI communities; and preserving and spreading LGBTQI heritage and culture.
Its aim is to draw the attention of professional and political public opinion, as well as the attention of wider society to the problems of LGBTQI people; the operation of services to assist them; getting to know the social situation and needs of LGBTQI people; mainstreaming these concerns in public services; protecting the rights of LGBTQI people and combating discrimination against them; increasing their well-being and health-consciousness; supporting LGBTQI-communities to organize themselves, preserve and promote their culture.
We are fighting for a society in which no-one is discriminated because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, where all members of the LGBTQI community are free to live according to their identity, and receive the help they need to resolve the problems they might face.See more
