HRC is creating innovative resources and reports that highlight the unique experiences of LGBTQ communities of color.
HRC's HBCU Program empowers LGBTQ HBCU students to be change-agents on their campuses and lead resourcefully through the intersections of race, religion, gender identity, class and sexual orientation.
HRC is working to end the HIV epidemic by advocating for culturally responsive prevention and treatment, focusing on those most impacted, which includes Black and Latinx gay and bisexual men and transgender women.
HRC is working with international LGBTQ advocates to strengthen the global equality movement, share best practices for education and outreach and speak out on human rights atrocities.
For far too long in our society, transgender people — and especially trans women of color — have faced blatant discrimination and severe violence simply for being who they are.
Through HRC's Youth Ambassador Program, we are amplifying the voices of racially diverse young queer people to change hearts and minds, and help build awareness and acceptance in their communities. Youth Ambassadors receive intensive mentoring and coaching and participate in HRC Foundation's annual Time to THRIVE Conference.
