Congratulations to our friends at @hrfunders on their report tracking 2018 human rights funding. We celebrate the progress here, including LGBTQI funding, and also note the stat that *total 2018 global human rights funding* = just 12% of 2018 Facebook operating expenses.🤯

How can philanthropy support the LGBTQI community? My thoughts here with a big HT to @GiveOut_Org @lgbtfunders @GPP_Updates @LGBTConsortium http://www.emmabeeston.co.uk/insight/2021/7/14/proud-philanthropy
