Renate fights for the rights of LGBTI people in Indonesia. She works as a project manager and community organizer for a community-based organization. Together with local and international LGBTI networks, she works on mainstreaming LGBTI issues, building solidarity and reforming public policies. She aims to empower members of the LGBTI community, and on to raise awareness about LGBTI rights. Her latest project tackles the issue of self-acceptance for LGBTI people and seeks to increase the general public’s understanding for sexual and gender diversity in Indonesia.
One of the goals of Shelter City is to broaden the networks of our guests. Do you think you could help Omayma with her work or do you want her to speak at an event or something similar? Contact us and we will get in touch!
