Maps on LGBTI people’s human rights: the world at a glance on IDAHOBIT 2024

How are countries across the world faring when it comes to laws affecting the lives of LGBTI people? Our maps are a powerful tool to let everybody know! Read more Read less

 

ILGA World maps are among the most shared visual representations of how laws and policies worldwide affect LGBTI people. With their easily understandable displays, they are powerful tools for social justice in the hands of human rights defenders, policymakers, journalists, academia, and all those interested in getting the facts right about the human rights of our communities.

Our maps also make for great campaign and educational materials! This year’s International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia is fast approaching, follow this link to access a selection of our latest maps and download them for free. You can reproduce and print them (even in large dimensions!) without permission, as long as you credit ILGA World properly and the content is not altered.

Even more LGBTI maps: the ILGA World Database

Beyond this selection, even more maps on LGBTI people’s human rights are available on the ILGA World Database! With that platform, ILGA maps have become interactive and constantly updated. This way, we can better cover sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) issues globally.

Our LGBTI rights maps cover more than 100 topics, as well as how  international human rights mechanisms like the Universal Periodic Review, Treaty Bodies, or Special Procedures within the United Nations address SOGIESC issues.
