This title, Equality to strengthen democracy: Analysis of LGTBI candidacies in the electoral processes from 2006 to 2016, pursues, to some extent, the following objectives: i) to make visible the existence of discriminated individuals and groups, in this case lesbian, gay, trans, bisexual and intersex; and ii) recognize their participation in different areas of life, specifically in political life. From this, the existing mechanisms of exclusion are identified, as well as discriminatory behavior, practices and processes that occur, or are likely to occur, in the political electoral area. This recognition opens the possibility of designing and implementing active policies to reduce inequality progressively.
