ILGA – the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association – is a world-wide network of national and local groups dedicated to achieving equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people everywhere.

Founded in 1978, it now has more than 670 member organizations. Every continent and over 110 countries are represented. ILGA member groups range from small collectives to national groups and entire cities.

ILGA is to this day the only international non-profit and non-governmental community-based federation focused on presenting discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity as a global issue.

The 5th ILGA-LAC Regional Conference and other pre-Conference events aim to define strategies for the promotion of human rights, citizenship, health and culture of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender and intersex people in the Latin American and Caribbean Region for the period 2010-2012, as well as to elect the three Regional ILGA Secretaries (01 gay man, 01 lesbian and 01 trans person).


The events shown in the right menu will be held between September 21st to 23rd 2009, prior to the 5th Conference itself.
