RFSL’s goal is that LGBTQIA+people should have the same rights, possibilities and obligations as everybody else in the society. The work is done through political advocacy and opinion making, informational and educational work, and social and supportive work with national projects and collaboration world wide. At branch level the focus is more about creating social meeting places.
