LGBTQ+

People around the world face violence and inequality—and in some places, even death—because of who they love or who they are. Sexual orientation and gender identity are fundamental to who we are as people and should never lead to discrimination or abuse. As the world becomes a more inclusive place, we want to share all the victories. Read about our LGBTQ+ heroes and those who fight alongside them.
