A brief history of the Conference

Up to November, 2014 the Russian LGBT Network's Conference had been called annually. The seventh Conference decided on making it at least once in three years. The functions of the Conference between the sessions are now directed to the Board of the Movement and the Interregional Coordinating Board. 

Before November, 2014 the activists would share their reports and elect new body members every three years at the Conference. One of the main aspects of the Conference had been the adoption of the Movement's strategic plan for a three-year period. The Movement's strategic plan for 2012-2014 was adopted during the IV annual Conference in November, 2011 in Moscow. The Movement's strategic plan for 2015-2017 was adopted during the VII annual Conference in Peterhof. 

Apart from being the supreme governing body of the Movement, the Conference has become a platform for activists from different regions to share their experience. It has been decided that the forum for the activists would be held annually. During the forum, the activists would discuss the most important issues of the LGBT movement in Russia and the rest of the world, the problems of human rights violations and visit work-shops, trainings and seminars.
