July 25, 2017

Parliamentarians for Global Action (PGA) LGBTI Inclusion Site (available in English and Spanish) provides user-friendly tools designed to help parliamentarians, and other relevant stakeholders, better understand their role in ensuring equality and non-discrimination of all individuals, regardless of who they are or whom they love. The Site describes relevant human rights frameworks and highlights the role of parliamentarians, civil society and other stakeholders in implementing Agenda 2030 (the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by world leaders in 2015), to ensure no one, including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) persons, is left behind. It offers practical tips, tools and resources designed to support parliamentarians to undertake legislative, representational and oversight activities that advance the rights and inclusion of LGBTI people.

The LGBTI Handbook for Parliamentarians produced with UNDP is available for download in PDF form (in English and Spanish) on the Site.
