The American-German Institute is pleased to announce a new three-year project that will explore LGBTQ+ community-building in Germany and the United States (2023-2026). The project aims to foster cross-cultural exchange with participants from diverse backgrounds by sharing personal testimonies, successes and failures, and best practices. AGI is recruiting LGBTQ+ participants from a variety of sectoral, intersectional, and generational backgrounds. There will be one cohort per year (for a total of three cohorts) comprised of 7 German and 7 U.S. nationals. Each cohort will experience one week-long program in Germany and one in the United States. A variety of deliverables will be part of the project throughout each program year, including written policy briefs and articles to be published digitally and as hard copies, as well as multimedia presentations in various formats. This project will reach a wide audience in both countries, not only in the LGBTQ+ communities, but also among other minority groups, the general public, as well as policy makers.
