Accessibility statement

Accessibility statement

This is an accessibility statement from ILGA World.

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.

ILGA World strives to fully conform with WCAG 2.1 level AA in its website structure and with the content published after 12 March 2024. Content migrated from previous versions of the website might not fully comply with these standards.

Additional accessibility considerations

We strive to provide every video with captions in both English and Spanish.

Measures to support accessibility

As a federation of organisations dedicated to advancing equal rights for all, ILGA World reaffirms its commitment to disability pride, disability justice, and the human rights of people with disabilities – including those who also are of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and sex characteristics.

ILGA World calls on all its member organisations and the LGBTI community at large to redouble their efforts to dismantle barriers for LGBTI persons with disabilities, facilitate their full inclusion and participation in the movement, and challenge the ableism and discrimination that hinder their participation in society.

LGBTI people with disabilities: the world already done at ILGA World, and our path forward

Ableism and the marginalisation of LGBTI people with disabilities within both the LGBTI communities and society at large must be acknowledged and dismantled. In line with the call in its strategic plan to “empower and give visibility to people of marginalised and diverse SOGIESC”, ILGA World has already been working to that extent, and we commit to continue doing so with renewed efforts.

Over the years, we partnered with disability rights and feminist organisations to include intersectional perspectives in United Nations human rights fora, where we co-hosted events and made ground-breaking contributions.

We embarked on an ongoing journey to make our communication outputs more accessible. Our latest World Conferences have regularly featured sessions raising awareness of the situation of LGBTI people with disabilities. Our regions are expanding their work on the topic, too. In 2020, ILGA Oceania voted to add the Disability Subcommittee Chair position to its Constitution, and ILGA Asia did the same in 2023. ILGA-Europe has long been in conversations with our members in the region to uplift the voices of LGBTI people with disabilities.

But we can, and must, do more.

We affirm our dedication to this progress by committing to continue to collaborate with LGBTI individuals with disabilities to create a comprehensive Disability Action and Inclusion Plan. Throughout 2024, we will diligently develop this plan, which will embody our unwavering commitment to eradicating discrimination against people with disabilities. It will outline our strategy to identify and address both implicit and explicit exclusionary practices and detail our plans to enhance accessibility in our workplace, products, and activities. Together, we can achieve a more inclusive and accessible future for everyone.
