ILGA’s 27th World Conference, “Decolonizing our bodies,” took place in Mexico City, Mexico between the 27th-31st October 2014.

Over 400 LGBTI activists and representatives of civil society organizations from around the world came together for a week of workshops, networking, analysis and discussions in support of both strengthening and celebrating the global LGBTI movement.

ILGA would like to thank all participants for their commitment and contributions throughout the conference.

During the conference elections were held for numerous positions on the ILGA board.

ILGA would like to congratulate its new board members. The new board is a result of positions elected at both the world conference and the previously held regional conferences.
