Our Work

We believe that when brought together, small groups of emerging LGBTQ leaders can accelerate the pace of change in their home communities and help end violence and discrimination against LGBTQ people worldwide.

The Global Partnership for Emerging Leaders brings together emerging leaders in the human rights LGBTQ community for an annual fellowship. Each fellow participates in an annual summit, a year long project with their peers, and a closing summit which includes a presentation of their project and individual work. Each new group adds to a growing network of LGBTQ human rights defenders who can support one another in their individual work in their home communities while working collaboratively to fight discrimination based on sexual orientation and/or gender identity worldwide.



Your support helps The Global Partnership for Emerging Leaders (GPEL) to provide LGBTQ human rights activists from around the world the opportunity to engage, empower each other and emerge as the next generation of leadership in the LGBTQ community.
