I Exist Too was registered as a charity following the success of the I Exist Too Forum in May 2023 in which leading maritime industry professionals, academics, human rights advocates, diplomats and United Nations agencies gathered in Panama to improve the visibility and rights of LGBTIQ+ population within the maritime industry.

Approaching LGBTIQ+ Rights in the Maritime Industry

“A comprehensive intervention in the maritime sector is essential to protect the rights and well-being of LGBTIQ+ individuals. It's crucial to remember that true inclusion means leaving no one behind. If we fail to do so, we're only fighting for the privilege of a few at the cost of many. I'm optimistic that this project will help promote the humanisation and improvement of the maritime industry culture."

“We must work together to ensure that the needs of the LGBTQ+ population are not overlooked or silenced, and that we continue to make progress towards a more equitable and just society." Founder,  Gustavo Abdiel Aguilar-Miranda.
