very good source of information and advice applicable in Cambodia.

Let’s get involved by responding to their survey!

GALE is a learning community focusing on education about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues. We promote the full inclusion of people who are disadvantaged because of their sexual orientation, sexual identity and their expression by identifying, enhancing and sharing educational expertise. The membership of the community is free and open to anyone actively involved in education about LGBT issues. GALE is a formal partner of UNESCO. Our main priorities are:

  1. Map the Right to Education worldwide (see checklist) and promoting the proper implementation of the Right to Education by states (see the guide Advocate for sexual diversity education and the long version with many annexes)
  2. Pilot projects in schools and developing a toolkit to work with schools
  3. Pilot projects on LGBT storytelling/peer-education and developing a supportive tookit
  4. Promoting and supporting the inclusion of LGBT issues in sexuality education and bullying strategies in cooperation with UNESCO (see UNESCO publication on homophobic bullying)

Mapping the right to education for LGBT/DESPOGI

Introduction

This short survey helps GALE (The Global Alliance for LGBT Education) to make a country report for you which gives an overview of how the right to education in your country is respected and implemented for LGBT people. Actually, we prefer here to speak about DESPOGI people: “Disadvantaged because of their Expression of Sexual Preference Or Gender Identity”. We think discrimination of ‘heterosexuals’ on these grounds is just as bad as discrimination of ‘LGBT’, and we want to prevent exclusion of people based on a classification that some people may not feel comfortable with.

The survey consist of 22 questions. Please write the answers in English. Our questions and standard answers focus on the role of the State to secure these rights, but you can also add information about what happens in practice.

Feel free to ask friends and educators you know to fill in the survey. Upon request, we will send you the report when we finish it or update it. The questions about your name and email are not mandatory, and if your give us your contact details, we will not give these to others or bother you with mails unless you ask us to.
