Abstract

In the past 4 years, a new international interest has arisen to combat bullying and discrimination of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bixual, Transgender and Intersex) people in the education sector. This article describes how this interest arose, and some experiences of the Global Alliance for LGBT Education in monitoring the implementation of the Right to Education for LGBT people, to analyze results and how to use the results to advocate and cooperate for a better quality of schools. The article describes a monitoring instrument and experiences with strategic workshops to analyze monitoring results and developing follow-up strategies including cooperation between LGBTI grass roots organizations, the education sector and governments.
