Every donation is doubled for
OutRight Action International
Friends! I hope you can make a contribution to our movement. Any amount, $5, $10, $100, will have a lasting impact. Every day, LGBTIQ people across the world face violence, discrimination, and are denied access to their basic human rights.
Did you know that at least 100 gay men in Chechnya were rounded up, tortured, and put into concentration camps this year?
Have you ever considered that LGBTIQ people across the world are denied basic access to healthcare services and are faced with healthcare professionals who are unaware of health concerns particular to the LGBTIQ community?
Were you aware that men have been arrested in Indonesia for homosexuality - and if convicted they will face 100 lashes and public humiliation?
For those of us in the US, we all remember the heartbreaking shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.
LGBTIQ communities around the world are diverse, facing a myriad of obstacles to secure their basic human rights, from battling laws that require trans individuals to be forceibly sterilized, to changing attitudes that promote "corrective rape" for lesbians, to simply trying to live honestly without the fear of violence and discrmination.
LGBTIQ communities are fierce and resilient, so please, donate what you can to an organization that fights for the rights of LGBTIQ people across the globe, working with and for communities to promote change towards a world that is more accepting, peaceful, and one that values human rights for everyone, everywhere.
This year, OutRight has been given the exciting opportunity to double the amount raised during Give Out Day! Two generous donors have offered to match dollar for dollar anything we raise up to $20,000. Your gift will be doubled, and small donations matter!
Thank you for anything you can contribute! Much love!
