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.
This Global Spotlight series is a collection of research-based articles that examine the situation facing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in a variety of countries where high profile developments that affect LGBT people are occurring or imminent in the near future.

World Congress of Families
The World Congress of Families (WCF) is one of the most influential American organizations involved in the export of hate. Since 1997, WCF has held conferences and events around the world that foster homophobia and transphobia under the guise of protecting the “natural family.”
HRC members signed a petition urging the Obama Administration to take additional action against Gambian leaders following the regime’s ongoing crackdown and persecution of LGBT citizens, and called on it to demand that the Gambian government provide more information about the health and safety of individuals who have been detained on the basis of their sexual orientation.
