Impact of restrictions on freedom of expression and association based on SOGI: contribute to a joint report

What are the trends concerning laws, policies, and practices that restrict freedom of expression, association, and peaceful assembly by lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and gender-diverse persons?

The Independent Expert on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) opened a call for submissions to gather relevant information on the restrictions of freedom of expression and association based on SOGI with a particular focus on civil society groups and individuals advocating for the human rights of people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and sex characteristics.

ILGA World is collecting information on this issue to prepare a joint report. Specifically, we are looking for examples, statistics, laws and policies, concrete cases, testimonies, and any other relevant information from your region on the topic.

The deadline to send your information to ILGA World and be included in our joint submission is 26 January 2024 and can be sent to: sp @ilga.org or to un @ilga.org.

We look forward to contributing to this historic United Nations report together!
