No âmbito da Semana Pelo Combate à Pobreza e à Exclusão Social, a rede ex aequo irá organizar uma tertúlia no Centro LGBT às 18.30 no dia 18 de Outubro, sob o tema A Exclusão Social de pessoas LGBT.
Estarão presentes na tertúlia, a Lara Crespo do Grupo Transexual Portugal, a Júlia Pereira do GRIT e o Miguel Vale de Almeida. A tertúlia pretende ser um espaço informal onde se discutirão as especificidades da exclusão social de pessoas LGBT. Apreendendo a realidade e os seus contornos é um bom ponto de partida para se tomarem medidas para combater a pobreza e a exclusão social daqueles que se encontram numa posição de risco.
