We are delighted to launch today ILGA World’s 2020 Annual Report.
Mapping the work that we did last year to bring our global LGBTIQ family together, the publication shows our continued impact, and offers a glimpse into the future direction of both our organisation and the movement writ-large, as we all continue to find ways to move forwards within the global Covid-19 pandemic.
“2020 may have been a year we’ll never forget, but it has also reminded us of what a real community is made of: the power of being there for each other when we need it the most, and of bringing others close even when physically forced apart! To all in our LGBTIQ community, thank you for turning up, for standing side by side, for being a passionate leader that continues to push for change. You make our global family better.”
Luz Elena Aranda and Tuisina Ymania Brown,
Co-Secretaries General of ILGA World
“When the emergency clearly became global, we quickly moved to adapt our work to continue supporting our communities worldwide. At a time of forced distancing, “we are #InThisTogether” became more than just a public campaign: it solidified as the guiding principle to all our work.”
André du Plessis,
Executive Director of ILGA World
ILGA World is grateful for the support of its member organisations, staff, interns and Board and Committee members who work tirelessly to make everything we do possible. A heartfelt shout-out and thank you goes to all the human rights defenders around the world for the time and energy they commit to advancing the cause of equality for persons with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions, and sex characteristics everywhere!
