Achieving effective equality for LGBT + people and regardless of gender is a joint responsibility.
Recognition and respect for sexual orientation and gender identity is part of what we mean by human rights. Everyone has the right to a dignified and violence-free life and the university context is a space where people spend a great deal of their time.
We therefore want to ensure that equality and non-discrimination are real and effective for all people at FEUP, in order to avoid compromising coexistence, well-being, academic success and the personal and professional development of men, women, without binary gender and regardless of sexual orientation.
We intend to create a safe environment for the university community to interact in relation to sexual orientation and gender identity. Although prejudices may be unconscious, without the intention of discriminating explicitly, we cannot allow, either individually or collectively, to be naturalized.
We propose to prevent, detect and not tolerate any type of discrimination, forced invisibility, rumors and offensive comments that disturb the environment and the community that lives in our faculty.
