Over the past two years, the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission staff of regional experts as well as activists from around the world have created a truly unique body of work now compiled in this 80-page publication.

In Perspectives, you’ll find op-eds, commentaries, testimonies and blogs. Published in mainstream news outlets and independent media, this compilation includes 20 authors who tell the story with the insight and context that only those with the lived experience can provide. We are pleased to share with you this collection of milestones, roadblocks and breakthroughs, rich in analysis of what these developments mean for LGBT and human rights movements globally.
