We are delighted to announce that registration is now open for the 2024 ILGA World Conference!

We look forward to meeting you at the largest global gathering of LGBTI changemakers.

Our global family returns to Africa

The ILGA World Conference returns to the African continent for the first time in 25 years, hosted by organisations led by – and working for – lesbian, trans, and intersex persons. To the increasing targeting of our communities shaking the region, we respond with global solidarity.

Everywhere, LGBTI activists and other social justice movements are experiencing a tidal wave of pushback for their work. Once again, those in power use our communities as convenient scapegoats to cover up their failures to provide a better future for all.

In times of violent opposition, we find ways forward together. In unity we rise!

Conference fees and diverse participation

For its 2024 World Conference, ILGA World has different tiers of fees to help support diverse participation. Follow this link to find your conference fee and register for the event!

We expect hundreds of LGBTI human rights defenders to unite at our World Conference. It is an experience that no one in your global community should miss!

Can you help others participate in the 2024 ILGA World Conference? Contact us at sponsorship (a) worldconference (dot) ilga (dot) org, or make a donation. You will help LGBTI activists and allies unite across borders and strengthen alliances to change the world, together!

Support the conference

ILGA World is committed to gathering our membership and global community together. But organising a World Conference is a significant feat, and comes with high costs. Contact our Fundraising and MEL Manager, J. Andrew Baker, at sponsorship (a) worldconference (dot) ilga (dot) org if you can sponsor the 2024 ILGA World Conference, are interested in partnering with us, or wish to learn more about ways to invest in the event.

The deadline to apply for a scholarship to attend the 2024 ILGA World Conference has expired. Over the past few months, we received over 1,000 applications for our scholarship programme. Unfortunately, we can only support a fraction of those who applied. Selected scholars have been informed during the past weeks.

No matter whether your scholarship application was unsuccessful, we still hope to see you at the 2024 ILGA World Conference! If you need support to participate in the event, we invite you to seek alternative funding to join us and register now as a paying participant.

The deadline to propose sessions for the 2024 ILGA World Conference has expired.
