Pushing Human Rights Forward

Resistance... Resilience... Rights.

for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people around the world.

We at IGLHRC train LGBT people to document the injustices they suffer every day in villages, towns and cities around the world.

Next, we at IGLHRC train them to testify about their lived realities to international human rights tribunals where they hold their governments accountable.

Each person’s story is like a single pixel, but combined with the dozens or thousands of other stories, we have a picture of LGBT communities worldwide speaking for themselves to demand justice and change.

Please join us in making this picture of human rights for everyone, everywhere possible.
