Situation of
LGBTIQ+ worldwide

To date, around a third of the Member States of the United Nations Organization - around 70 countries - continue to criminalize homosexuality. Because of this, there is a deep-rooted stigma against them that negatively affects not only LGBTIQ+ people but also the communities and economies in which they live.

This situation of criminalization of sexual and gender diversity has a direct impact on communities. In many cases it causes forced migration and the displacement of people who only want to live in peace and be themselves.

It is key to note that in situations of violence such as civil war or armed conflict, LGBTIQ+ people are not only expelled from their countries but also from their own communities.
