HRC Story


The Human Rights Campaign represents a force of more than 3 million members and supporters nationwide. As the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization, HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are ensured of their basic equal rights, and can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.

HRC Global Internship

The HRC Global intern will work alongside HRC staff to leverage HRC’s domestic LGBTQ work to have an international impact. From calling out Americans for exporting hate to advocating for an LGBTQ-inclusive U.S. foreign policy, HRC envisions a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all. This internship includes researching and writing about international LGBTQ issues and provides opportunities to attend events regarding the global LGBTQ movement. Interns will learn about LGBTQ issues around the world and be part of HRC Global's work. The HRC Global internship is an excellent opportunity for students interested in LGBTQ issues, international affairs and human rights.
