Heartland Alliance

Heartland Alliance’s Global Initiative for Sexuality and Human Rights (GISHR) stands behind activists who are improving the lives of LGBT persons — promoting their rights and protecting them from abuse — in some of the world’s most hostile environments. GISHR supports the initiatives of local activists to do this in a number of ways, from assisting LGBT persons facing hate crimes, to breaking down deep-seated societal prejudices and garnering key allies for LGBT equality.

GISHR funds and partners with local LGBT organizations to promote LGBT rights in their home countries within Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
