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.

Andrew Baker, at development (a) 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.

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!
