Founded in 2013, the Centre for Equality and Liberty for the LGBT Community in Kosova (CEL) brings together community members to advocate for their rights and shift public attitudes about LGBT issues. Their theatre production “Bent” was the first LGBT-themed play to be performed in the country. The play, performed to packed audiences, helped to revitalize dialogue on human rights and the LGBT community. CEL is now conducting outreach to LGBT community members; creating community spaces for LGBT people, particularly engaging lesbians and bisexual women; and building regional networks by undertaking study visits to LGBT organizations in other countries in the Western Balkans. CEL also focuses its’ work on raising awareness among the general population, in regard to LGBT rights and aims to educate youth and break down barriers caused in their society by misinformation, and conservative attitudes.
