For the seventh year in a row OutRight is gearing up to host OutSummit.
OutSummit is an annual global conference for the human rights of LGBTIQ people organized in partnership between OutRight Action International and CUNY School of Law. It is a space where people from across civil society, State, and private sector boundaries who believe in LGBTIQ equality come together to build momentum for achieving protection of the human rights of LGBTIQ people everywhere.
OutSummit has been held for the past six years around Human Rights Day, marked annually on December 10. The choice of date is not coincidental. To this day, in too many places, the human rights of LGBTIQ people are not recognized as human rights.
For the second time it will be held virtually, enabling diverse stakeholders from our movement across the world to participate.
Sessions will take place from December 8 to 10, 2021, and be catered to include participants across different time zones.
In recognition of OutSummit being held on Human Rights Day, and in acknowledgment of the scale of violations against the rights of LGBTIQ people around the world, this year’s theme of the conference is simple – human rights for LGBTIQ people everywhere.
Registration for OutSummit 2021 is open and we invite you to register today!
