New information and advice point on sexist violence towards women and LGBTI-phobia in nightlife, located on the seafront at the junction between Pg. Marítim in Barceloneta and C/ Trelawny. The service will operate every Friday and Saturday in August, from 7 pm to 1 am, and staffed by a team of four experts in this area, two on the stand and two on foot in the vicinity.

The goal is to prevent possible cases of sexual harassment and provide advice for people who suffer sexist violence, LGBTI-phobia or sexual aggression in public space within the context of nightlife.

The stand provides a space where specific support can be provided in a comfortable and trusting environment for anybody who suffers any sort of violence or who wants information and advice.

This service also has the collaboration of the City Police.
