In the society today social media is a powerfull weapon to use for your advangede and to gain knowlegde, but sadly social media can also be misused for negative impact and there in comes LGBTQ on-line hate speech.
We at ANSO wanted to do something powerfull and make an impact on tearing down hate speech on-line, so we came up with the idea of making a toolkit on combating LGBTQ directed against hate speech on-line. The board feels that people can use our toolkit to gain knowledge on LGBTQ hate speech and also learn how to make an inpact on stoping on-line hate speech. The board members of ANSO are satisfied with the outcome and we hope that activists can use our toolkit to their advantage to stop on-line hate speech against LGBTQ prejudice.
The meeting was funded by Counci of europe.
