Very pleased to support this comprehensive new report on the criminalisation of trans & gender diverse people globally & particularly shocking that it is the police who people most fear: https://t.co/mEM1ZLpSYl @GPP_Updates https://t.co/iYz8rCfMov

Don't miss next week's “Connecting the Dots: LBQTI and Gender Equality” webinar co-hosted by @GPP_Updates + Philanthropy Advancing Women's Human Rights for a thoughtful dialogue about the intersections of global movements to advance gender equality. https://t.co/bLpzMPac2G

This powerful video from @SMUG is uplifting us today after the devastating news that Kenya's anti-gay law was upheld. But the arc of history will bend toward justice. Our grantees look onward to higher courts of appeal. "We can do it together." #Repeal162

We are deeply sad that Nairobi's High Court has declined to repeal Kenya's anti-gay law. We stand in solidarity with our partners who have worked tirelessly on the case & with all LGBTQI Kenyans. Together, we'll continue the fight for dignity & equality. #Repeal162 #LoveIsHuman

Join @ILGAWORLD in its call to fully depathologize #TGNC identities in the Int'l Classification of Diseases. See why declassifying being trans as a mental illness isn't enough--removing the term "gender incongruence" & more info on trans health is next: https://t.co/Lqirg1unPu

See why the Kenyan High Court's decision to uphold the criminalization of same-sex conduct contradicts other LGBT-rights cases in the country, including the registration of @NGLHRC & @AudreyMbugua; or its obligation to int'l law under the U.N.: https://t.co/LKngsyHPAb #Repeal162

High Court in Kenya has upheld the #Repeal162. SAD!

Kenya remains among countries that laws are used to persecute #LGBTQ. SHAME!

But battles for personal freedoms like those for political freedoms are won through PERSISTENCE.
