Where Rainbow International LGBT Activist Solidarity Fund operates:
We work principally in the countries where being LGBT is criminalized and where people continue to be persecuted on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. 2.9 billion people still live under laws that criminalize same-sex relationships. That’s nearly half of the world’s population. Being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender is illegal in almost 80 countries, and in at least five of them is still punishable by death. Trans* people are marginalized – often in extreme forms – in virtually all societies, in all parts of the world.
