Today marks the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. Whilst there have been many great advances in the enshrinement of LGBTI rights in laws, LGBTI communities still face serious threats to their safety and well-being and are still not fully recognised as citizens in many countries.
AmplifyChange is supporting civil society advocacy to improve the rights of LGBTI people and prevent gender-based violence in sub Saharan Africa and South Asia. Since 2018, we have awarded over £12m in grants to organisations addressing these issues.
In this short report, we explain more about our activities and share some examples of grantee projects to illustrate that gathering evidence, providing support to survivors, engaging with stakeholders and seeking to change legislation are crucial approaches to understanding and responding to this abuse of human rights.
