2021 has been a challenging year for EQUAL GROUND (EG) due to the persistent spread of COVID-19 that demanded the tightening of restrictions and frequent lockdowns. Yet 2021 was a year of transformation that enabled us to successfully face the challenges that the “new normal” brought upon us. The dedication, hard work, and creativity of the staff enabled EG to reach milestones not only at an organisational level but also at a national level. Welcome to our Annual Report for 2021!

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer/Questioning (LGBTIQ) population in Sri Lanka are subject to legal, political and social restraints. EQUAL GROUND believes that mapping LGBTIQ identities anonymously across Sri Lanka would be an effective, safe and nonintrusive method to shed light on the hidden LGBTIQ community and their issues in Sri Lanka.
This study is an exploratory research to ascertain the plight of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer/Questioning (LGBTIQ) employees in Sri Lanka, from the perspectives of employed LGBTIQ persons, as well as organisational management.
This policy brief analyses education and employment policies in Sri Lanka and how they affect the LGBTIQ community in this country.
Despite the protection that the employees receive through our domestic labour laws, or the existing recommendations and conventions given by the International Labour Organisation(ILO) Conventions, there seems to be a lack of knowledge about what these employee rights are, and what can be done if they are violated. This booklet is designed to be used as a quick reference guide for LGBTIQ employees, to help them understand and know their rights in a workplace.
Terminology helps to build bridges and assists in understanding. This guide is to assist us in understanding the LGBTIQ community in all its diversity. The LGBTIQ community is fluid, colourful, varied and different, but they are very much a part of our society, worldwide. Sri Lanka is no exception. This booklet is a step toward understanding who we are.
