LLH aims to work for the equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people and their liberation from all forms of discrimination.
LLH - The Norwegian LGBT Association aims to work for the equality of lesbian, gay and bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people and their liberation from all forms of discrimination. We focus public and government attention on cases of discrimination against LGBT people by asserting political/diplomatic pressure, providing information and working with other organisations and national media.
The LLH project 'Pink Competency' provides training for health professionals, school staff and the police forsce. It raises awareness within these professions regarding how heteronormativity affects health care provided to LGBT populations. Pink Competency is a national collaboration between the Norwegian Directorate for Health, the Norwegian Directorate of Education and The Norwegian Ministry of Justice and LLH, the Norewgian LGBT organization.
In Norway, same-sex couples formally have the right to adopt, and then everybody has the same rights to parental leave no
matter their gender. In practice, it is impossible to adopt from abroad. Since there are very few Norwegian children for adoption,
so the right remains almost illusory.
Women in same-sex relationships have the right to receive artificial insemination on the same level as different-sex couples.
Surrogacy is prohibited, and the government is discussing whether having children this way also abroad should be made punishable by law.
"By means of this action plan the Government wishes to place the LGBT perspective in all policy areas and in the ministries involved."
