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 januari 2015 tot september 2020 en bestaat uit drie delen. Het onderzoek werd afgesloten op 19 oktober 2020.
