Interns will work in legendary organizations advocating equal rights for the LGBTQ community, some since as early as 1950, in Barcelona, Madrid and especially Seville, in the South of Spain. There are older, well established groups, almost political in nature now, and many newer organizations, all working towards educating, advocating and making more visible any and all LGBTQ issues. People have been able to marry who they want in Spain since the turn of this century (2000) so it is a wonderful and accepting place to live for the LGBTQ community and their families.
Candidates choosing to intern in this sector in Chile are lucky – we are well connected with two famous groups there. Given the new anti-discrimination legislation, called “Zamudios Law“, named after a gay boy who was attacked, there is a lot of renewed energy for the rights of this population. We truly believe you can make a difference in the LGTBQ community at large with this LGBTQ international internship.
