LGBTI+ Students of PoliMi

PoliEdro was born as a landmark for all Politecnico di Milano students around LGBTI+ rights and causes. PoliEdro tries, through meetings, debates and cultural activities, to raise awareness of sexuality, gender identity and the relationship among them and society, politics, culture and the University.

We are a group of students willing to raise awareness of the causes of the LGBTI+ community through our events, and willing to welcome and help who feels discriminated in within our University.

Our story

This is how, from many faces, a big "PoliEdro" was born

  • 2012-2013

    The beginnings

    PoliEdro was born to fight every kind of discrimination: gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, etc. In 2013 we participated for the first time to Milano Pride and organized our first big event: "La condizione della donna" (The condition of women). The follow presidents follow each other: Eugenio Semeraro, Stefano Grandis and Sebastiano Musumeci.

    A golden year

    In collaboration with the Municipality of Milan and Agedo, PoliEdro presented for the first time in Italy the documentary "Invano mi odiano: racconto sui cristiani LGBT in Russia" (They Hate Me In Vain - LGBT Christians In Today's Russia) by Yulia Matsiy. We also participated to EXPO 2015 with our exhibition "Parole Prigioniere" (Imprisoned Words). We collaborated with the USA Pavillion for the events in favour of the LGBT community. We started, together with other associations, the campaign #Hungry4HumanRights: our president Sebastiano Musumeci made a bunch of special dishes for it, which were offered to famous people who support it, like Monica Cirinn and Conchita Wurst. In October, Sebastiano resigned from his charge and Ruggero Limberti became the new president.

    The "tour" in Italy

    It was the year of Civil Unions in Italy. PoliEdro took part to all events in favour, like #SvegliatiItalia (Wake Up, Italy!) on January 23rd in Piazza della Scala, Milan, and #OraDirittiAllaMeta (Now Right to the End) on March 5th in Rome. Civil Unions were approved, and we celebrated them by going to four Pride Parades: Pavia, Varese, Turin and of course Milan. Finally, we got in touch with other Italian LGBT student groups and took part to a great meeting in Bologna.
