The Human Rights Campaign recognizes that "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." As such, we work to leverage our domestic LGBT work to have an international impact. From calling out Americans for exporting hate to advocating for an LGBT-inclusive foreign policy, HRC envisions a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all. HRC is a founding member of the Council for Global Equality and became a member of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) in 2012.
For more information on the laws and policies affecting LGBT people around the world, download the ILGA State-Sponsored Homophobia Report. You can also search the Department of State's Country Reports on Human Rights Practices to learn about human rights around the world. Finally, LGBT travelers should look at the Department of State's LGBT Travel Information website.
