Join the Conversation on Twitter #LGBTyouth2013
The conference follows on from and builds on the work of the EU Youth Conference held in Dublin in March 2013.

The Youth Conference identified LGBT Youth as one of a number of key groups within society likely to experience social exclusion and clearly identified seven areas where this exclusion can happen.
We've taken four of these areas as the thematic working areas for our conference:
This conference is an invite only event
The aim of the conference is to identify key actions to promote the social inclusion of LGBT youth under these four headings at an EU level.
