About the Event
Join ReportOUT and Mongolian activists on Wednesday, 30th June, from 6pm on Zoom to hear more about what life is like for sexual and gender minorities in Mongolia. We'll be speaking with activists from a variety of backgrounds, discussing the current political situation, human rights of sexual and gender minorities in Mongolia, as well as access to services, health, housing, community and other issues, including how the community in the country is finding resistance.
