There are millions of LGBT people around the world who are gaining visibility and fighting for their rights but some live in fear and isolation – and under the rule of governments that criminalize their very identities. HRC Global strengthens the global equality movement through public education, advocacy, fellowships, partnerships, and research. HRC is a proud member of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA), a partner of the Clinton Global Initiative, and a founding member of the Council for Global Equality.
