About Us

European Centre-Right LGBT+ Alliance

The European Centre-Right LGBT+ Alliance is a pan European Centre-Right political network.  The Alliance gathers organisations that are part of a political party that belongs to the European Peoples’ Party (EPP) such as CDU, CDA and Moderaterna.

The Alliance works primarily with LGBT+ issues in order to advance the rights of LGBT+ persons.

Like the member parties of the EPP the member organisations of the Alliance are Christian democrats, conservatives or liberal-conservatives.

The Alliance was founded in Berlin in 2013 by centre-right LGBT+ organisations from Germany and the Nordic countries. The inaugural meeting was held at the CDU headquarters.

The aims of the European Centre-Right LGBT+ Alliance is to:

  • Advance the rights in society for LGBT+ people based on the Christian Democratic and the Centre-right concept of society and values such as freedom for persons and families, personal responsibility, dignity, and diversity.
  • Influence the political parties of the Centre-right towards inclusivity of LGBT+-issues and people.
  • Influence the policies of Centre-right parties to ensure that they are pursuing an agenda of individual freedom, diversity, and rights for LGBT+-people.
  • Contribute to a political environment where more LGBT+-people support Centre-right political parties due to strong policies in relation to LGBT+-issues.
  • Strengthen co-operation between Centre-right LGBT+-networks.
