ACTIF Funded Projects: Together for Equality – Promoting social change for the recognition of LGTBI rights in Honduras

Target country

  • Honduras

Project description

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, two-spirited and intersex (LGBTQ2I) people in Honduras face various forms of discrimination and stigmatization, too often expressed through acts of violence and other forms of human rights violations. Unfortunately, these violations are rarely reported and therefore go largely unpunished.

To counter this injustice, important changes in attitudes in the different spheres of society are necessary, especially at the level of state actors. With this in mind, Lawyers Without Borders Canada (LWBC) and Centro para el Desarrollo y la Cooperación LGBTI – SOMOS CDC have agreed to join forces to develop the three-year project “Together for Equality: Promoting Social Change for the Recognition of LGBTQ2I Rights in Honduras”, which aims to promote public policies and regulations that are consistent with international human rights standards, through greater participation of strong, representative CSOs committed to promoting systemic change in favor of LGBTQ2I rights.
