Global Update: The State of LGBT Equity

Policy, laws, and community practices impact the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons and their families. Sexual orientation and gender identity are integral to every person’s dignity and humanity and must not be the basis for discrimination or abuse . While there have been positive steps towards LGBT equity in the United States and in countries across the globe, for many LGBT persons, there is a growing state of marginalization and in-equity. Presenters will provide a global update using these guiding questions: What is the impact of indifference and discrimination? How do LGBT youth and adults develop support and acceptance? What is the role of social workers – as allies and service providers - in policy, training and education, and advocacy for LGBT equity? And what resources are available for social work practitioners and other allies wishing to be part of the global movement to promote equity and inclusion of LGBT persons in all societies.
