Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lesben und Schwulenverband in Deutschland (LSVD) ("Lesbian and Gay Federation" in Germany) is the largest civil rights organisation of homosexuals in Germany.

The association was founded in 1990 as the gay association in the GDR by former opposition activists against the Communist government. After the reunification, civil rights activists joined them.

The organisation became known throughout Germany for its campaign for gay marriage in 1992.

The organisation has a welfare branch, is working with ILGA on international human rights issues and had a lot of success in supporting equal rights for homosexuals and legal acknowledgement of same sex partnerships.
