When was “DiverCity” Social-Cultural, Human Rights Defender Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) established?
The NGO was established on April 26, 2019. However, since 2022 DCNGO team decided to celebrate their anniversary on May 1, International Workers Day to emphasize the importance of the day.
The NGO was established by a group of young LGBT activists and allies who valued the protection of the rights of vulnerable and target groups and the ideology of biocentre diversity. That is why they decided to name the NGO “DiverCity”.
The team of the NGO involves its members, volunteers and workers. Thus, taking into account the vulnerability and sensibility of the work of the NGO, to avoid getting people targeted the team is divided into internal and external members. Internal members are those about whom we do not publicly share any information and external members are those about whom we share information publicly.
Here you can see the external members of the Organization.
The values of “DiverCity” NGO are fundamental human rights and freedom, eco-sensitivity, inclusion, human safety, transparency and accountability.
The “DiverCity” NGO’s activities are based on the ideology of diversity according to which we value the safety of the rights of vulnerable groups and establishing friendly relations between them. On the other hand, the Organization works in a feminist direction since we think that gender issues which refer to young LBTQ+ women and girls are important.
The aim of the organisation’s activities is to spread pluralism and diversity, to deal with socialisation and protection of the rights of vulnerable and targeted young people as well as to contribute to the development and acceptance of cultural diversity in Armenia.
The mission of the Organization is to create a safe, dignified and favorable environment to freely self-realize, protect the rights of young LGBTQ+ people, women and girls, and promote the raising of their problems.
The vision of DCNGO is the diverse culture and a pluralistic society in which there are equal opportunities for each young person, regardless of gender, sexual orientation and gender identity.
“DiverCity” NGO works in human defence, social, educational and informational directions.
The target groups of DCNGO are young LGBTQ+ people.
The Organization provides:
- Non-formal education,
- Legal consulting,
- Self-care free consulting,
- Comprehensive support for young people’s initiatives to implement their ideas.
To avoid getting targeted and provide safety for the DCNGO’s team and beneficiaries, we do not make the office address public. Note, that we work online most of the time. If you want to visit the DCNGO we suggest that you get in contact with us using the following email address of phone number:
