Outright’s Mission Endures
Ensuring human rights for LGBTIQ people everywhere through three strategic program areas
Outright is the only global LGBTIQ organization with consultative status and a permanent presence at the United Nations Headquarters, where we advocate for human rights and equality for LGBTIQ people, serve as secretariat of the UN LGBTI Core Group and act as a watchdog on all 193 world governments.
Outright invests heavily in partnerships with grassroots LGBTIQ communities and allies around the world, because the presence and strength of LGBTIQ organizations and activists is the single greatest factor that produces cultural, social, and legal change.
Outright’s research program provides an overview of global threats and opportunities confronting LGBTIQ communities. We have published hundreds of reports and briefing papers on urgent and relevant topics including so-called “conversion therapy,” legal registration for LGBTIQ civil society, and the impact of COVID-19 on LGBTIQ people globally.
We amplify a global cause, advocate and carry the voices of activists.
We support a growing global movement and celebrate LGBTIQ lives everywhere.
Outright International is dedicated to working with partners around the globe to strengthen the capacity of the LGBTIQ human rights movement, document and amplify human rights violations against LGBTIQ people, and advocate for inclusion and equality.
Founded in 1990, with staff in over a dozen countries, Outright International works with the United Nations, regional human rights monitoring bodies and civil society partners. Outright holds consultative status at the United Nations, where it serves as the secretariat of the UN LGBTI Core Group.
