Mapping the work that we did last year to bring our global LGBTI family together, the publication shows our continued impact and offers a glimpse into the future direction of both our organisation and the movement, as we all continue to find ways to move forwards together and defy challenges to our communities and the world writ-large.
“We know all too well how those who are already targeted with discrimination in their daily lives are even more at risk of paying a higher price whenever war, global insecurity, and other crises ensue. And it is in times like these that we should call for more global solidarity, not less. We need more unity to support our diverse communities, instead of fabricated conflicts among historically allied movements. (...) We have always believed that when we unite, we can really bring about change!"
Luz Elena Aranda and Tuisina Ymania Brown,
Co-Secretaries General of ILGA World
“In over 40 years of its history, ILGA World has been an instrument in the hands of marginalised communities to make their struggle visible - from the grassroots up to international fora such as the United Nations. This crucial voice of the LGBTI movement is more necessary than ever (...). Together we will continue to translate ILGA World’s strategic vision into positive impact and lasting change for the communities that we serve.”
