LGBT rights

Violence and discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons and their organaisations remains widespread around the world, as does the criminalisation of advocacy for LGBT rights.

Building on our leading role in developing the Yogyakarta Principles on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity, our work with LGBT rights defenders strengthens international and regional protections against discrimination and supports them in advocating for the implementation of these standards on the ground.
