Welcome to
"It takes all kinds"

The project “It takes all kinds” is an international cooperation between ten European countries, aimed at eliminating discrimination, homophobia and transphobia in schools throughout EU. “It takes all kinds” includes working with three main audiences: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) NGOs and other interested civil society organizations; second-level school teachers and school management; and young people in second-level schools. TThe main focus of the project is to ensure that such issues as human rights, equality, sexual orientation, gender diversity, inclusion and non-discrimination, become a significant part of the vocabulary of every student and teacher. By encouraging students and teachers to learn about discrimination and equality, and about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and issues, DIHR is aiming to promote inclusive and non-discriminatory practices in European schools and to eliminate homophobic and transphobic bullying and harassment. The project started in 2010 and will run until the end of 2012. The European Commission finances the project which is conducted in cooperation with ten EU NGO partners:

  • Denmark: “LGBT Denmark”
  • Sweden: “RFSL”
  • Ireland “GLEN”
