Call for contributions: State-Sponsored Homophobia report (Global Legislation Overview)


Dear friends,

ILGA World will publish an update to the Global Legislation Overview chapter of the State-Sponsored Homophobia report to track the legal progress and backtracking that took place since December 2019 on legal issues. The latest version of the Global Legislation Overview can be found here.

You can now help us shape our forthcoming update, and there are several ways for you to do that.

First, we invite you to send us your feedback, comments or corrections to any inaccuracy you may have spotted in our previous edition.

If you would like to refer our attention to specific materials you or your organisation may have produced or published, or any other material that you know is out there and could be cited in the State-Sponsored Homophobia report, we will be happy to receive your suggestions. When doing so, please include links or attach any material you may want to share.

Of particular interest to the report is any news or material regarding enforcement of legislation criminalising consensual same-sex intimacy, legislative initiatives to bring about change on any aspect of the law, judicial decisions and public policies, including progress or backtracking at the national/federal level, at the state/provincial level and at the local level. All kinds of sources (journalistic, academic, NGO reports, etc.) in any language are welcome.

You can send your comments, materials and contributions to [email protected] until October 20, 2020.

Your support is fundamental, and we thank you in advance for what you will be able to share with us!
