Our main task is to contribute to the realization of respect for human rights of LGBT persons across Montenegro through numerous activities directed at further building the capacities of LGBT human rights protection institutions, training local self-government throughout Montenegro to begin specific activities in this field, by creating public policies in relation to a legal solution that will lead to the legal recognition of communities of persons of the same sex, and the law on gender identity.
