The Municipal Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transsexuals and Intersexuals Council (MLGBTIC) is an advisory and sectoral participatory body established on 22 July 2004, for the purposes of fostering equal rights, freedom and social recognition of LGBTI people. This was the first time that a municipal government equipped itself with a participatory council intended for the area of sexual and gender diversity.
