Charity description

SUPPORTING LGBT PEOPLE TO UPHOLD HUMAN RIGHTS AND CONSTITUTIONAL LAW

The Human Dignity Trust is an organisation of international lawyers that supports LGBT activists to uphold human rights and constitutional law in countries where private consensual sexual conduct between adults of the same sex is criminalised. We mobilise the intellectual resources of the international legal community in support of local actors who seek to use the courts to challenge laws that persecute people on the basis of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
 
We have supported litigation that has resulted in the decriminalisation of consensual same-sex sexual conduct, dropping of LGBT-related criminal charges and in upholding of freedom of association rights for LGBT people.
 
We are led by the needs of local actors, providing them at their request sophisticated technical legal assistance. Our technical assistance includes comprehensive legal research and analyses, drafting of legal submissions and assistance to local counsel in preparing for court hearings, as well as complementary support for local communications and security strategies for those involved in litigation.
