We are delighted to launch today ILGA World’s 2022 Annual Report.
Mapping the work that we did last year to bring our global LGBTI family together, the publication summarises an extraordinary year of remarkable recent achievements and highlights what we can accomplish when we stand together - uplifting and amplifying the voices of LGBTI human rights defenders worldwide, from the grassroots up to the United Nations.
“In many aspects, the new normal that we were hoping for looked a lot like the past. The attacks against our LGBTI communities have become more relentless. Old prejudices resurfaced in all their violence. Our human rights work became even heavier. And yet, despite the pushback, 2022 gave us many reasons to rejoice! (...) To all of you, our esteemed members: we extend our boundless gratitude for your unwavering dedication. We cannot thank you enough for what you do."
Luz Elena Aranda and Tuisina Ymania Brown,
Co-Secretaries General of ILGA World
“A World Conference in a time of global travel restrictions. The renewal of a United Nations mandate. Facing antigender and anti-trans narratives as they increasingly take up space. Navigating all of the above, interwoven with the ever-shifting landscape of a pandemic, was certainly no small feat for ILGA World. And yet, 2022 was another landmark year in the history of our organisation. (...) This crucial voice of the LGBTI movement is more necessary than ever.”
Executive Director of ILGA World
ILGA World is grateful for the support of its member organisations, staff, interns, consultants, and Board and Committee members who work tirelessly to make everything we do possible. A heartfelt shout-out and thank you goes to all the human rights defenders around the world for the time and energy they commit to advancing equality, equity, recognition and protection for persons with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions, and sex characteristics everywhere.
