The International Gay & Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) is entering its 25th year, making it the most established and accomplished group in the US that focuses solely on protecting the basic safety and human rights of LGBT people around the world.  

IGLHRC supports and trains activists in their native countries how to formally and accurately document human rights violations.  That evidence-based data and other factual research studies about LGBT lives in countries around the globe are then submitted to multi-national bodies like the United Nations.

IGLHRC is also the only US-based LGBT group that has consultative status at the UN where it advocates alongside fellow foreign activists.  At the UN, IGLHRC successfully raises awareness about violence and discrimination against LGBT people--assaults that could easily remain overlooked.  They continue to make governments accountable for homophobic and transphobic policies, while inspiring diplomatic change at the UN that literally saves lives.
