SPIRIT DAY

This Spirit Day, the United Nations is calling for everyone to take a stand against LGBTI bullying.

Justice and Protection for All

Fair treatment and protection from violence and abuse are things that many of us take for granted. Yet for millions of lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people, justice is far from guaranteed. Globally, too many countries retain outdated or repressive laws, either lagging behind or willfully rejecting progress towards LGBTI equality.

CELEBRATE TRANS VISIBILITY

Everyone has a deep-rooted sense of their own gender. For most people, their gender identity will match the sex recorded on their birth certificate when they were born. But for some, their assigned sex isn’t true to who they really are...

Bi Visibility

Bisexual people, often referred to as ‘bi’, are emotionally, romantically or sexually attracted to people of more than one gender.…

Trans activism saves lives

For trans people in Brazil, discrimination, violence and murder is an all too common part of life. In this video, we meet Tathiane, Taya, Ludymilla, Melissa, Ana Carolina, Christopher and Saulo – activists who are standing up for the human rights of their communities and friends, and inspiring allies to do the same.

Be There

Being an ally is about more than silent acceptance. It’s about being there for your lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) family members, friends, colleagues, and neighbours. It’s about striving to understand their experiences, and helping them to understand yours. It’s about supporting one another in times of need. It’s about setting a positive example for others. And most importantly, it’s about creating a more inclusive and loving society where everyone is valued, no matter who they are or whom they love.

IT’S TIME

The UN is calling for equal rights and fair treatment for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex people worldwide.

Global Business Standards

Violence and discrimination against lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people cannot be ended by governments alone. Businesses can foster diversity and promote a culture of respect and equality both in the workplace and in the communities where they and their business partners operate. The United Nations is calling on companies all over the world – big and small, local and multinational – to help to help move the dial in the direction of greater equality for LGBTI people.

CULTURE OF LOVE

Culture and tradition are profound parts of our lives. They allow us to come together to mark life’s milestones, and celebrate our heritage and the people we love. For many, they provide a sense of home, of history and identity.

END BULLYING

Every day, lesbian, gay, bi, trans (LGBT) and intersex kids – and other children seen as defying gender stereotypes – are bullied at school, at home and in their community. Bullying can take many forms–from taunting and name-calling to brutal violence.
