As part of our continuing #DecriminalizeLGBT campaign, we’re highlighting organizations and individuals that are working to protect and defend the rights of LGBT people around the world. Being LGBT is currently criminalized in over 70 countries around the globe. In at least 8 countries it is punishable by death. As long as homosexuality is criminalized LGBT people will continue to face violence, harassment, and discrimination. LGBT people cannot fully participate in their communities or enjoy access to public services when we are seen as criminals. Action must be taken and governments must be held accountable. Through grassroots organizing, social media engagement, and leadership from non-profits, governments, and corporations we can abolish these unjust laws.
