    Human Rights Don't Discriminate

    LGBTI rights are human rights

    A person's sexual orientation or gender identity can lead to discrimination, violence, imprisonment, torture, or even execution, and these abuses are all illegal under international human rights law. Amnesty International works to protect the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people by shining a light on rights abuses, calling for policy change, and working to protect LGBTI human rights defenders. Amnesty International considers anyone imprisoned solely because of homosexuality to be prisoners of conscience who should be immediately and unconditionally released.
