With donations outside of the Give Out Day platform, we're narrowing in on our goal! Every dollar counts towards global LGBTIQ human rights.
Did you hear about the horrific law in Brunei that has stoning on the books for same-sex relations? Did you get upset when you heard about the mass arrests in Chechnya? Have you been angry lately when you have heard about all the sudden attacks on our community?
How can you take action to stop this downward spiral?
As hate and cruelty emerge worldwide, your help will ensure OutRight can use its international platform to uplift the voices of those most affected. In the face of a growing flagrant and bold opposition, help us rise up to protect those in harm's way and demand respect for human rights for LGBTIQ people.
Around the world, countries from Armenia to Zimbabwe threaten the arrest and expulsion of LGBTIQ people. Brunei, Chechnya, Indonesia... Sometimes it may feel as if everywhere we look there is an onslaught on our communities. But that's why we lift up activists doing incredible work - like trans leader Rikki Nathanson, arrested for simply being herself. Prison, torture. forced anal exams, conversion therapy, violence from our own families - there are so many ways LGBTIQ people are under attack. Will you help OutRight fight back today?
We rise up in this global tide of LGBTIQ crackdowns, lifting up activists and pressuring governments to prioritize human rights for people everywhere. With your help, we train officials and media, advocate at the United Nations, and support action so local leaders have a voice on the world stage.
OutRight is taking action to rise up against hate.
Join us as we rise up!
We've set a goal of $20,000 and any amount, big or small, will help us rise up.
Our community continues to endure heartbreaking injustices. But each donation chips away at ignorance helping to remove obstacles every step of the way.
Consider How your Donation Advances LGBTIQ Rights:
$50 enables security training to advocates in hostile environments like Guyana, Turkey, Guatemala, or Tunisia
$200 arranges LGBTIQ sensitivity training to law-enforcement in places like the Philippines
$400 ensures emergency assistance to refugees from Iraq, Iran, Syria, and the Gambia
$1000 sends activists from the Middle East or Africa to LGBTIQ human rights documentation and advocacy training
$1500 brings activists to the United Nations to testify against government abuses
$3000 funds a scholarship for an Iranian LGBTIQ activist to advance LGBTIQ rights and community capacity resulting in work like the ground-breaking, queer graphic novel Yousef and Farhad
Without your support, we lack the groundswell of pressure necessary to stop the attacks against dignity, freedom and basic human rights.
