OutRight Action International
USA - New York
OutRight’s work operates on a continuum. We work to advocate for and influence change at all levels of power—national, bilateral, sub-regional, regional, and global. We call this interlocking spectrum of power the ladder of influence. To make our communities stronger, we want the human rights of LGBTIQ people to be integrated at every level of this ladder. OutRight’s value is in our ability to connect our partners to these different levels of power to push an agenda for change.
We fill research gaps, provide trainings to community members and allies to develop their expertise, and convene key stakeholders to exchange information on best practices related to ending violence based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, or sex characteristics. We vigilantly monitor, research, and document the discriminatory and life-threatening conditions LGBTIQ people face in order to spur action to stop human rights violations when they occur.
OutRight works at the international, regional and national levels to research, document, defend, and advance human rights for LGBTIQ people around the world. We partner directly with human rights defenders, allies and organizations to produce reliable data on the experiences of LGBTIQ people around the world and support research-based advocacy and capacity-building for the human rights of LGBTIQ people.
