United Nations: LGBT NGOs and Consultative Status at the United Nations in 2008

IGLHRC helps activists to navigate the UN system in New York, monitoring and reporting on the meetings of UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and a subsidiary body—the NGO Committee—during the evaluation process for LGBT NGOs seeking to obtain consultative status at the UN. IGLHRC applied for its own consultative status in May 2007.

The outcomes IGLHRC hopes to realize include: good coordination and preparation of NGO’s, supportive state delegates, and also timely reporting on meetings at the UN.
