The Eurocentralasian Lesbian* Community – (“ELC”) is a lesbian feminist and intersectional network. The EL*C started out of a self-organised space in 2016, recognizing the multitude of needs surrounding the rights, the visibility and the well-being of lesbians throughout Europe and Central Asia. In 2022, EL*C has over 300 individual members and 41 group members. We work to strengthen our community, to make lesbian issues visible to those in power, to build and find together the strategies, the resources and the tools to resist violence and discrimination against lesbians.

A bit more about ELC's third conference edition
We look forward to welcoming you at the EL*C international lesbian conference 2022!! For edition #3, our theme is "LESBIAN RESISTANCE: one lesbian is a blessing, hundreds coming together are a revolution!" and we can’t wait to come together and share, learn and solidarize with hundreds of lesbians meeting in Budapest Hungary for our third conference happening between 29 Sept-1 Oct, 2022.
The conference is open to grassroot activists, academics, artists, policy makers, authors, politicians, journalists, human rights advocates!
The program is organized in such a way as to offer participants the opportunity to deliver workshops (via an open call), we organize pre-curated discussions (plenaries) and also set up a space for networking and this is also where we bring in cultural productions, parties / artwork. In the past, we’ve invited keynote speakers, for example, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, ED of UK Black Pride to Vienna. And Monica Benicio, widow of the human rights activist municipal councilor Marielle Franco traveled to Ukraine for our second conference to be one of our keynotes.
Our conferences usually run between 3 and 3.5 days, including a pre-conference opening event. When possible such as in Vienna, we also organise a dyke march, as a way to strengthen lesbian visibility in public space.
Going to Budapest is a way to join all other whistleblowers in denouncing the resurgence of far-right politics and of anti-human rights narratives in Europe and other parts of the world. To counter the call to boycott, we want to help visibilize all efforts to spread positive messages about feminism and the LGBTIQ community, especially where these efforts are led by lesbian groups. Our goal is to have as many countries as possible represented from all parts of Europe and Central Asia. By locating the event centrally we hope to attract a wide audience from different regions.
