Iván Chanis

Iván is an LGBTQI+ rights activist from Panama. Ivan is a director of Fundacion Iguales, a non-profit organization dedicated to the observance, promotion, and respect for human rights as a way to strengthen values such as equality and diversity. In addition to his activist work, Ivan is a lawyer who actively represents cases for marriage equality and advocates for the civil rights of the LGBTIQ+ community. Furthermore, Iván takes on cases of anti-LGBTQI+ discrimination. Iván is a public and recognized figure in the fight for LGBTIQ+ rights in Panama.

Panama still has a long way to go when it comes to respect and recognition of LGBTQI+ rights. 

One of Shelter City's goals is to broaden our guests' networks. Do you think you could help Iván with his work? Contact us, and we will get in touch! Keep in mind, this guest is no longer staying with us in Amsterdam, but we would be happy to forward your message so you can get in touch with him.
