Engaging Government and Multilateral Funders
GPP is regularly engaged by donor governments to provide private briefings and presentations on the global LGBTI funding landscape, drawing on our research analysis and member expertise.
Some examples of our work in this area:
- On 1 March 2022 at the Sydney WorldPride Human Rights Conference, Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong announced Australia’s first dedicated fund for LGBTQIA+ rights in Asia and the Pacific, the A$3.5m Inclusion and Equality Fund. She also announced the development of a first-ever dedicated Australian LGBTQIA+ human rights in foreign policy strategy.
- Following a number of years of strategic engagement with the UK Government, led by the GPP member, the Baring Foundation, and GPP’s Government Relations team, a new commitment of £40m for LGBTI rights worldwide was announced by the UK Minister of State (Development and Africa), Rt. Hon Andrew Mitchell, at the first UK LGBTQI Global Giving Summit on 22 November 2023.
