The ILGA World Conference is the largest global gathering of LGBTIQ changemakers

Since the 1970s, ILGA World Conferences have brought together
LGBTIQ leaders and activists from all over the world.

They have been fundamental events for our movement ever since,
and are moments to shape the life of our organisation.

ILGA World is queer democracy in action, and it all starts at ILGA World Conferences. Join us! 

The 30th ILGA World Conference, hosted by the It Gets Better Project, will be held in LA Long Beach, California, United States from to 2 to 6 May 2022.
