About ILGA World
ILGA World is the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, a worldwide federation of more than 1,700 organisations from over 160 countries and territories campaigning for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex human rights.
Our ongoing partnership with ILGA World and donations from 2019 and 2020 aided the organisation in uniting activists from around the world. With our help, in the past two years ILGA World were able to support over 100 LGBTI activists and human rights defenders to advocate at the United Nations as well as expanding training and communications programmes across the globe.
Pride During The Pandemic
Throughout the global pandemic ILGA World adapted its work, and created meaningful, digital ways to keep connecting LGBTI activists with UN human rights bodies. Plus, they produced a series of virtual training and community led seminars as well as assisting regional organizations in building the capacity to host virtual and online conferences and gatherings of LGBTI activists, keeping their communities engaged during turbulent times.
This year, our £150,000 donation will support ILGA World in the planning of their 2022 World Conference, bringing together activists and the global LGBTI community. In addition, ILGA World will continue to support activists to raise their voices and experiences at the global level in United Nations human rights fora. In 2021, ILGA World will also release updated research reports and advocacy resources and support the formation of the Global Queer Youth Network, connecting and strengthening LGBTIQ youth civil society organisations around the world.
