A global overview of LGBT rights -- Criminalization -- Discrimination -- Violence and harassment -- Efforts to protect the human rights of the LGBT community.
Human rights advocates contend that the LGBT community has yet to achieve full equality and acceptance in the United States and elsewhere. In recent years in the United States, state legislators have introduced more than 250 bills that limit LGBT rights and twenty of these have become law. In other parts of the world, it remains shameful to identify as LGBT; in some countries, it is even punishable by death. These and other human rights concerns are examined.
