Dit onderzoek buigt zich over de specifieke situatie van seksuele minderheden en transgenders in Colombia. Cedoca gebruikt in deze COI Focus de term seksuele minderheden en transgenders steeds in zijn geheel om de situatie voor deze groep personen te beschrijven. Indien er verschillende situaties worden vastgesteld voor enerzijds seksuele minderheden of anderzijds transgenders geeft Cedoca dit steeds duidelijk aan. Daar waar de bron zelf de term LGBT gebruikt, neemt Cedoca de terminologie van de bron consequent over. Deze COI Focus behandelt de periode van januari 2015 tot december 2021 en is een update van de gelijknamige COI Focus van 19 oktober 2020. Het onderzoek werd afgesloten op 15 december 2021.
