Currently, injustice and inequality exists around the world for many LGBTI people and communities. In much of the world accessing funding support for even the smallest public actions and events is an enormous challenge. This fund is designed to address this gap.
The mission of the Solidarity Sub-Committee of InterPride’s Human Rights Committee is to distribute the voluntarily collected funds from our membership and sponsors to organizations that are helping to create change and promote a better understanding of LGBTI communities. The committee does this by awarding grants to community-based events around the world, with a focus on places where public LGBTI events face challenges and hostility.
Since the fund was launched in 2013, grants have been awarded to help produce an LGBTI film festival in Macedonia, a mass LGBTI wedding in The Philippines, the first public Pride gatherings in Jinja, Uganda, Nassau, The Bahamas, and many other LGBTI events.
