We believe political participation is an important tool to advance equality. Globally, we work with our partners to train LGBTI leaders, collaborate with political parties and state institutions for greater inclusion of LGBTI people, work to change people’s hearts and minds through public awareness and visibility actions, and conduct research on LGBTI political participation.

Partnering with in-country LGBTI organizations is always a priority in order to create and implement culturally-relevant programs utilizing local expertise. We bring 25 years of experience working in the U.S. on LGBTQ political participation – and collaboratively share experiences, ideas and expertise from one country to another.
