Ilaria Todde is a lesbian activist, actively engaged in feminist and LGBTI struggles from a very young age. A butch from Sardinia, navigating the gender roles and expectations that rural, traditional societies impose on non-conforming people, Ilaria found a home in feminism and in the lesbian community and never left. Started out as a grassroots activist and community organiser, then has taken part in the national struggles and advocacy efforts of the Italian and International lesbian and LGBTI movements. A member of the Eurocentralasian Lesbian Community (EL*C) team since its beginning, and with years of professional experiences in the European Commission, Ilaria is currently the EL*C Advocacy and Research Director.
