“Homophobia and other forms of stigma, violence and discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people contribute significantly to their exclusion from society, limit their access to health and social services and hinder social and economic development.”

This handbook is designed to encourage parliamentarians to advocate for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. It sets out relevant human rights frameworks and highlights the role of parliamentarians in implementing Agenda 2030 - which seeks to ensure that no one, including LGBTI people, is left behind. As stated in the handbook, “If a critical mass of parliamentarians commit to taking concrete actions to advance the rights and inclusion of LGBTI people, the impact would be profound and can drive legal, policy and social norm changes in every corner of the globe, genuinely ensuring that no one is left behind.”
