There are millions of LGBTQ 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 is a proud member of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) and a founding member of the Council for Global Equality.
