We have to fight against all forms of intolerance. We know that the LGBT community suffers from a lot of intolerance, which sometimes begins inside their own house. Sometimes the person is expelled from home, school, the labor market, and there are few alternatives left for them to develop themselves as human beings. This equipment [referring to the South LGBT Citizenship Centre] is to rescue trajectories that have been interrupted and that can be resumed with the support of the public power.
