Become a member of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA)

in WORLD, 11/04/2011

The only worldwide federation campaigning for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex rights. Since 1978.

After registering a contact person for your group (become an ILGA supporter) and then registering your group in ILGA’s Database and Directory (if you chose to make your group public), your group can apply to become a member of ILGA.

It’s a simple process: all you have to do is log in on ilga.org and click on “become a member”.

Your application to become a member of ILGA requires approval by the Executive Board of ILGA.

The Executive Board is composed of 16 members:

* Two Secretaries-General elected at ILGA's World Conference.
* One representative from the organization elected as ILGA's Trans Secretariat.
* One representative from the organization elected as ILGA's Women´s Secretariat.
* Two representatives from each of ILGA's regions elected at regional conferences:
+ Africa: Pan-African ILGA
+ Asia: ILGA-Asia
+ Europe: ILGA-Europe
+ Latin America and the Caribbean: ILGA-LAC
* Or at the world conference (in the absence of a regional board and conference):
+ North America: ILGA-North America
+ Oceania: ILGA-ANZAPI (Australia, New Zealand, Aotearoa and Pacific Islands)

More details about the names of board members and Secretaries-General of ILGA can be found here.
Your application will first be reviewed by the regional representatives who will then make a recommendation to the ILGA World Board, which will approve or reject your organization's application until the World Conference.

Membership fees should be paid once approval of application is confirmed by the ILGA Executive Board. Following the World Board's decision, your organization will be able to vote or nominate its representatives for elections at ILGA's world and regional conferences.

As a final step for full approval of your organization, participants at ILGA's World Conference, which is held every two years will welcome your organization by a vote at the conference plenary.

You will receive the Board's decision regarding the status of your application within the next two months of applying.
