Visibility is defined as "the state or fact of being seen" and the "relative possibility of seeing." This Pride Month, the Delegation of the European Union to the United States and the Capital Pride Alliance are proud to host “The Visibility Factor,” a discussion and celebration of LGBTQI+ visibility around the world. While protections exist today on both sides of the Atlantic that ensure equal treatment of the law regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation, LGBTQI+ visibility still varies greatly in definition and actions.
 
Our international panel of esteemed guests will share their own LGBTQI+ stories, highlight why visibility is important in their daily lives, and explore ideas for making LGBTQI+ individuals more visible around the world.
