Description and results


This project aims to support The Commonwealth Equality Network’s (TCEN) work to address inequality and discrimination faced by LGBTQ2I persons, communities and organizations. Project activities include: (1) providing training to TCEN member organizations on advocating for the protection and advancement of the human rights of LGBTQ2I people in Commonwealth forums; (2) researching the diverse lived experiences of LGBTQ2I persons in developing countries; and (3) providing technical advice to government officials to highlight LGBTQ2I rights and issues in Commonwealth countries. The project aims to reach LGBTQ2I TCEN member organizations working with LGBTQ2I communities and women in all their diversity from select countries in the Commonwealth.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced visibility and reference to LGBTQ2I rights and issues in Commonwealth spaces and policy documents; (2) increased mainstreaming of LGBTQ2I rights and issues within national stakeholder spaces and movements, including business forums, women's movement, climate change movement, youth, traditional and faith leaders, in Commonwealth countries; and (3) enhanced adoption and/or amendments of laws and policies (including socio-economic rights) which protect and promote the rights of LGBTQ2I people in Commonwealth countries.
