Over the past year, HRC has been on the ground, expanding equality for LGBT people here, there and everywhere.

Whether it was fighting back against anti-LGBT bills in Arkansas and Indiana, rallying on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court, canvassing at hundreds of pride events, countering more than 115 anti-LGBT bills in over 29 states or getting out the vote in Houston, HRC worked around the clock to ensure that all LGBT Americans can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in their communities.

In an effort to embrace and support LGBT equality worldwide, HRC staff traveled to over 15 countries and met with countless advocacy groups and business and community leaders to learn from their experiences and provide trainings, advice and support. HRC Global celebrated marriage equality in Ireland, countered anti-LGBT leaders from around the globe in Utah, empowered transgender people in the Philippines, advocated for global workplace equality in Mexico and much, much more.

As we approach the New Year, HRC knows that there is much work ahead. Many LGBT people are living in high-risk situations abroad and 75 countries still uphold anti-homosexuality laws. 

HRC is excited to begin this New Year, invigorated from our victories and motivated by our opposition, to push for LGBT equality for everyone, everywhere.

Counting down to 2016, HRC is celebrating our greatest milestones and victories in 2015. It has been another incredible year for LGBT equality and we could not have done it without you -- our members, readers and supporters--and we look forward to continuing our work in 2016. Stay tuned for more highlights from 2015.
