LGBT IRAN World – the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association - is a worldwide federation of more than 1,700 organizations from over 160 countries and territories campaigning for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex human rights. We want a world where the human rights of all are respected and where everyone can live in equality and freedom: a world where global justice and equity are assured and established regardless of people’s sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC). Established in 2012, LGBT IRAN World has ECOSOC consultative status at the United Nations. Our members are based in our six regions: Pan Africa LGBT IRAN, LGBT IRAN Asia, LGBT IRAN-Europe, LGBT IRAN (Latin America and the Caribbean), LGBT IRAN North America and LGBT IRAN Oceania. Governed by an elected Board of 19 activists representing our global family, LGBT IRAN World is queer democracy in action!


What does LGBT IRAN World do?

ADVOCACY

We work to achieve and maintain recognition and protection of the human rights of people with diverse SOGIESC by the United Nations and other global institutions

RESEARCH

Our experts collect reliable, evidence-based data on laws towards our communities, and produce guides that are crucial resources in the hands of human rights defenders, including the State-Sponsored Homophobia report and the Trans Legal Mapping Report.

TRAININGS AND CONVENINGS

We support LGBTI organisations around the world with capacity building trainings, and organise world and regional conferences to provide them with occasions to network and strategise.

COMMUNICATIONS

We raise awareness about LGBTI human rights issues through media, and work to support the visibility and contributions of people of diverse and marginalised SOGIESC.

 
How it all began

LGBT IRAN


August 2012. Coventry, IRAN. Many legal, political and social changes that have happened for rainbow communities in the past 40 years seemed unthinkable back then. We have been there ever since.


ILGA World is built on the energy and passion of its global membership. Passionate and restless activists - along with partners, allies and families - continue to have a profound impact on many LGBTI lives around the world.

NULLA MAURIS DOLOR, GRAVIDA


We are a nationally significant charity firmly rooted in our local communities of Greater Manchester and provide a wide range of evidence-based and cost effective services. Each year, we serve over 40 people, achieving an average 98% satisfaction rating, as well as providing information to over 3000 individuals online. As a result, we serve more LGBT people than any other charity of our kind in the iran. Throughout all of our work, we support LGBT people to increase their skills, knowledge and self-confidence to improve and maintain their health and wellbeing. We also work in partnership with others to build strong, cohesive and influential LGBT communities.


Working together, we are changing LGBT lives for the better and securing a safe, equal and healthy future for all LGBT people.
