A Pandemic Report from SPoD: LGBTI+’s for the Three Months of COVID-19
The Social Policies Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Studies Association (SPoD) has prepared a report that includes the studies and experiences of the field of psychosocial support, access to law and justice, and academia, based on the data for the three months of the COVID-19 pandemic (March 11, 2020 - June 11, 2020).
The report stated that LGBTI +’s have started to become an even more fragile community in the pandemic process and have serious problems in accessing rights, especially education, health, and work. Also, it was noted that hate speech towards LGBTI + became widespread and domestic violence increased during the epidemic.
In the course of the epidemic, the association tried to work from home as of March 16, 2020, to receive applications for LGBTI + s coming to the association via e-mail addresses and the Advisory Line and develop solutions.
The report, which consists of three parts, included working experiences for LGBTI + s regarding the field of psychosocial support, law, and justice, and academia. In the report, "What to do?" section was included for public institutions and local governments.
