Report 1: Global Impact of COVID-19 on LGBTI Communities
20 April 2020
This report was generated by the Equal Rights Coalition Civil Society Working Group on COVID-19, to provide an overview of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is currently having and risks having in the future on LGBTI populations.
The Equal Rights Coalition (ERC) is a coalition of 42 Member States, co-chaired by the governments of the United Kingdom and Argentina. The Coalition is unique as the global body of governments focused on advancing the human rights of LGBTI persons, and promoting inclusive development in both member and non-member countries. It works with over 120 LGBTI Civil Society Organisations and convenes every two years to renew its strategy and actions. Stonewall Equality, Kaleidoscope Trust, and Comunidad Homosexual Argentina have been appointed as the Civil Society Co-Chairs of the ERC for the 2019-2021 period.
