The HRC Story

HRC Global Internship

The HRC Global intern will work alongside HRC staff to leverage HRC’s domestic LGBT work to have an international impact. From calling out Americans for exporting hate to advocating for an LGBT-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 LGBT issues and provides opportunities to attend events regarding the global LGBT movement. Interns will learn about LGBT issues around the world and be part of HRC Global's work. The HRC Global internship is an excellent opportunity for students interested in LGBT issues, international affairs and human rights.
