The purpose of this guide is to provide access to relevant, diverse and credible research on the role of gender equality issues in achieving development goals. It aims to inform dialogue, learning and the sharing of good practice around areas such as gender mainstreaming, measuring change, legal and policy frameworks on gender and human rights, and successful initiatives from the field.
Digital Security for LGBTI Communities
For lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people around the world, especially in places where non-conventional sexualities are stigmatised, threatened or even illegal, access to online LGBTI communities provides essential space to connect with allies, friends and the broader movement, and to learn about more about sexual rights. These positive developments have however come with new opportunities for homophobic responses, violence and coercion. This update recommends a set of resources to help LGBTI communities improve their security both on and offline.
