Make a difference for LGBTI rights through activism 

Do gay people have fewer human rights than straight people? Of course not. And yet it’s a crime to be gay in at least 78 countries today. In some, it can get you executed. From the UK to Uganda, we’re working to end discrimination in society and in the law. Get involved with LGBTI campaigning.
