Who are we?

Founded in 2004, Bilitis is the oldest LGBTI organization in Bulgaria. Bilitis began its activity as a self-support group of lesbians and bisexual women and gradually has included trans and intersex people in its leadership. Our approach takes into account the interconnectedness between gender, race, class, sexual orientation, gender expression, ethnicity, religion, disability, and other factors, which shape the social status of the individual.
Today, Bilitis is a champion for mobilizing the LGBTI people in Bulgaria and an advocate for LGBTI rights.
