Joel Bedos is one of the main driving forces behind the sexual orientation and gender identities (SOGI) campaign resource hub on public campaigning in Strasbourg. He currently sits on the board of the IDAHOTB Committee, the organization that established the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia in 2004. Joel has built the SOGI campaigns project on his years of campaigning experience for LGBTI issues and his work experience for various NGOs. His career has taken him from relief work to development work focusing mainly on basic education to advocacy and campaigning. He is a former policy and campaigns director for Oxfam France and acted as policy advisor for Oxfam International. He married his boyfriend in 2014, shortly after France legalized same-sex marriage and co-parents his teenage daughter with a lesbian couple.
