Informacje o organizacji:Platypus is an NGO which strives to create a more equal, tolerant and inclusive society. Its main focus is on particularly marginalized and vulnerable groups, above all LGBTI and refugees/asylum seekers/migrants.
Platypus has been established by a group of young people and youth workers with a long history of volunteering and social activism in LGBTI and human rights organizations. Platypus was set up because of the dissatisfaction with the work of other LGBTI organizations. Platypus sees LGBTI people as complex individuals who are not defined only by their sexuality and gender identity. Instead, these are curious beings who wish to explore many other interests and passions. Platypus' goal is to set up activities where LGBTI youth can explore ecology and environmentalism, religion, arts and other areas not related to LGBTI issues in a safe and inspiring environment. Furthermore, Platypus was created to build bridges between LGBTI community and other groups. While most other LGBTI NGOs are focused on working exclusively with LGBTI people, Platypus tries to bring the LGBTI perspective (the perspective of being marginalized and vulnerable) to resolving problems of other discriminated groups.
