On January 8th, a panel discussion titled “Justice and Protection of Law on LGBT” was held at Dagon University.
The event was facilitated by the group members of Active Rainbow and Youth Alert. Additionally, Colors Rainbow also distributed educational books and SOGIE comic books concerning LGBTIQ rights to the students.
The panel discussion was led by LGBT Advocates- Thwe Thwe Soe, Su Wai Hlaing (&PROUD) and Ye Lin Htet (founder of Rainbow Alliance) in which they focused on Section 377 of the Myanmar Penal Code that reinforces prejudice against the LGBTIQ community in the country. Approximately a hundred and fifty dagon university students attended the educational event.
“A Blue-Sky,” a gay-themed short film about coming of age of a high school student, co-produced by Colors Rainbow was also screened after the panel discussion.
