Charity description

HUMAN DIGNITY TRUST logo
Decriminalising Homosexuality By Upholding International Law

HDT is a charitable organisation that supports those who want to challenge laws that criminalise homosexuality, wherever they exist in the world. Consensual same-sex sexual intimacy is still a crime in 78 jurisdictions worldwide, making LGBT people at best ‘unapprehended felons’ across almost half of all countries, and at worst a highly persecuted minority. We provide technical legal assistance to local activists and lawyers for use in test-case litigation to challenge criminalising laws. Litigation is often the only option for local LGBT communities to uphold their rights contained in national constitutions and under international human rights law. We are a registered charitable organisation which is only able to provide this much needed support due to the generous support we receive from donors and the pro bono assistance from a panel of the world’s leading law firms. You can help our work by donating now! And if you’re a UK taxpayer, donations will now be topped up by an extra 25%!
