Breaking the Silence: Participating in LGBT Studies Matters

If you match all the requirements (check image) please take a moment to participate in this study, data will be collected until the end of April.

In the vibrant streets of Lisbon, there exists an urgent need for greater understanding and awareness of LGBT issues within the Portuguese landscape. As an LGBT walking tour company we feel the need to share why this is important for us as a community and as individuals.

Despite Portugal's progressive reputation regarding LGBT rights, there remains a concerning silence surrounding the unique challenges of the LGBT community. This silence is not merely an oversight but a barrier to progress and inclusivity. By participating in studies focused on LGBT issues in Portugal, we can break the silence and amplify the voices of our community while learning about our rights and where to ask for help when needed.

Understanding LGBT issues within the Portuguese cultural context requires nuanced exploration and research. While international studies provide valuable insights, they may not capture the intricacies and nuances of the Portuguese experience. By participating in Portuguese-specific studies, we can ensure that our voices are heard and that our unique cultural landscape is accurately represented and understood.

We call individuals to recognize the importance of participating in studies focused on LGBT issues. By breaking the silence, addressing cultural nuances, driving policy change, empowering the community, and celebrating diversity, we can contribute to a brighter, more inclusive future for LGBT individuals in our country.

Together, we raise our voices and make a difference.

Poster calling for participants

In this specific study A Criminology Masters student, Rita, ask if you have been a victim of a hate crime as an LGBT person, but what constitutes as a hate crime?

Hate crimes are criminal acts that are motivated by prejudice, bias, or hostility towards a particular group of people based on their race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or other characteristic. These crimes are typically intended to intimidate, harm, or terrorize individuals or communities and are often characterized by violence, harassment, vandalism, or verbal abuse.

In this case, they would specifically be offences to the physical integrity, physical assault & threats or insults of LGBT people.
