Final 2022 Conference Report

By J. Andrew Baker | Fundraising and MEL Manager

Our 2022 World Conference: reunited at last! 

For almost three years, we were separated from our chosen family with only screens to keep us connected.

At ILGA World, we have been extremely proud to have created one of the first occasions in which our global LGBTIQ community could come together again. Our 2022 World Conference in Long Beach, CA, United States, held under the theme “LGBTIQ Youth: future present change” and hosted by the It Gets Better Project, truly felt like rains after a long drought!

With almost 900 LGBTIQ changemakers present, both in person and virtually, and 137 sessions in five days, together we took a deep dive into the state of human rights for our community globally, and we reminded each other that we are not alone in our fight! This conference marked also the first time that three countries’ Special Envoys on LGBTIQ human rights attended the conference together. From the United Nations, three Special Procedures mandate holders and the Youth Envoy joined the conference, too and in a moment of increased, concerted attacks against our rights, such statements of commitment and solidarity are more important than ever.

"Covid-19 is only one of the crises that our planet continues to face.  But a conference like ours has been a much-needed reminder that we don’t have to fight alone: our struggles intersect with those lived by others, and weaving alliances is now more important than ever. Our LGBTIQ communities are here to unite, not to be divided."

Our 2022 World Conference in the words of Tuisina Ymania Brown and Luz Elena Aranda, ILGA World Co-Secretaries General

Our 2022 World Conference in the words of Julia Ehrt, Executive Director at ILGA World

An event of this magnitude is not possible without the tireless work and the generous support of many. A heartfelt shout-out and thank you goes to the It Gets Better Project, our volunteers, and InterAct.Events - as well as to the Chairing Pool, our Board members, and ILGA World staff, consultants, and junior consultants who kept the conference engines running smoothly. Most of all, our thank you goes to all the LGBTI activists around the world for the time and energy they commit to advancing LGBTI equality everywhere. We are in this together!!
