ILGA-Europe's Global Work

The situation for LGBT people and their rights is very different around the world. If in some European countries same-sex partners can marry and sexual orientation discrimination is prohibited by law, in some countries throughout the world LGBT people are subjected to discrimination and in the worst case - death penalty.

There are various organisations working to advance the situation for LGBT people in the world:

International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA)

International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission

Many mainstream international human rights organisations increasingly paying attention to the rights of LGBT people:

Amnesty International

Human Rights Watch
