The LILI Luxembourg Institut for LGBTIQ+ Inclusion is a structure dedicated to collecting, analysing and raising awareness of the discrimination suffered by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ+) people.


Over the last two years, Luxembourg has seen an upsurge in cases of discrimination against the LGBTIQ+ community. Against this backdrop, Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE, the only centre in the sector to have statistics on Luxembourg territory, has set itself the goal of reflecting the country's situation in terms of discrimination against the LGBTIQ+ community and responding to the needs arising from it.

To this end, and to reduce the invisibility of the community, Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE has created the Luxembourg Institute for Inclusion (LILI), the first institute dedicated solely to observing discrimination against the LGBTIQ+ community. This institute, a pioneer of its kind in Luxembourg, is funded thanks to the commitment and generosity of the André Losch Foundation.


André Losch Fondation is a charitable foundation established in 2009. The André Losch Foundation provides independent and impartial support for projects dedicated to young people in the Grand Duchy, in the fields of education, social inclusion and health. Its aim is to contribute to the development of a fairer, more sustainable and cohesive society.


Le Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE is a centre for support, empowerment, training and awareness-raising. Since 2002, we have been working by, for, in and with the LGBTIQ+ community.

Our work is divided into 4 pillars:

  • Support and Accompanying

  • Building and Empowering

  • Training and Informing

  • Thinking and Sharing


Data collection and research: LILI conducts studies and collects data on LGBTIQ+ people's experiences of discrimination. This may take the form of surveys, qualitative interviews, longitudinal studies, etc. The aim is to document and understand the different types of discrimination faced by the LGBTIQ+ community in various contexts (work, education, health, etc.).


Analysis and reports: Based on the data collected, LILI analyses the trends, reasons and factors that contribute to discrimination against LGBTIQ+ people. It produces reports and analyses that highlight the specific challenges faced by the LGBTIQ+ community, as well as recommendations for combating this discrimination.

Awareness-raising and advocacy: LILI organises awareness-raising campaigns to inform the general public about LGBTIQ+ discrimination and to promote inclusion and respect for the rights of the LGBTIQ+ community. It also works in partnership with human rights organisations to promote anti-discrimination policies and legislation.

Training and education: LILI offers training courses and workshops for professionals from various sectors (health, education, social work, etc.) to raise their awareness of the specific issues facing the LGBTIQ+ community. These training courses aim to promote inclusive and non-discriminatory practices in these areas.

Support for victims: LILI offers support to LGBTIQ+ people who are victims of discrimination by referring them to appropriate resources and services. This can include counselling services, legal information, community support networks, etc.

Policy monitoring: LILI monitors government policies and initiatives on LGBTIQ+ rights and assesses their impact on the community. It intervenes in political debates to defend the rights and interests of the LGBTIQ+ community.

Collaboration and partnership: LILI works in collaboration with other organisations, institutions and civil society players involved in the fight against discrimination and the promotion of equal rights. This collaboration strengthens our collective efforts to create an inclusive environment that respects the diversity of sexual orientations and gender identities.
