The Global Equality Fund Stakeholder Workshop, a gathering of groups that are working to advance the wellbeing of homosexual and bisexual women and men, and transgender and intersex people from 32 countries across Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and South, Central and North America, was the first ever global gathering of grantees of the Global Equality Fund. Convened by the DRL and co-hosted by the Other Foundation and the Hilton Hotel, global leaders in LGBTQ+ activism gathered for a week of robust engagement, purposeful deliberation and, idea exchange and collaboration.  

The keynote address  for the workshop was delivered by the United Nation’s Independent Expert on Violence and Discrimination against LGBTQI+ People, Victor Madrigal-Borloz, and highlighted the need for the movement to commit to collective action that goes beyond describing problems, but works towards solving those problems.  To do the work of building global reach that produces local impact.

Here is what some discussants had to say about the event:

‘The content was quite relevant to my work. I had the opportunity to moderate a panel as well as facilliatate a self orgainzed session”;

‘Useful in terms of identifying new strategies that can be used in our grant’;

‘The participants represented the right mix of donors, local groups, and international implementers so that diverse views were presented and the conversations were extremely productive’;

‘Lots of relevant information from grass organizations.’
