As we grow ever closer to realizing the dream of equality here in the United States, there are millions more LGBT people around the world who live in fear and isolation – and under the rule of governments that criminalize their very identities. The Global Engagement Program works to leverage HRC’s domestic LGBT work and passionate membership base to be a strong partner in the global equality movement. By calling out Americans for exporting hate, creating awareness of international LGBT issues, and collaborating with dedicated advocates across the globe, HRC is working towards a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.


HRC is a founding member of the Council for Global Equality and is a proud member of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA).
