#Derechos LGBTI

Los derechos LGBTI van ganando reconocimiento y apoyo, aunque sigue habiendo serios intentos para criminalizar a la comunidad de personas LGBTI en muchos países del mundo. En el 2015, la International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) denunció que son 75 los países que criminalizan las relaciones entre personas del mismo sexo. Además, algunos introdujeron leyes contra la "propaganda homosexual" destinada a tomar como blanco a la comunidad LGBTI. A pesar de esto, los/as defensores/as de derechos de personas LGBTI trabajan activamente en todos los países buscando mejorar los derechos humanos de la comunidad LGBTI .

LGBTI rights are gaining in recognition and support, even as there are strong attempts to criminalize the LGBTI community in a number of countries around the world.

In 2015, the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) reported 75 countries that criminalize same-sex relationships, though others also have introduced laws against 'homosexual propaganda' aimed at targeting the LGBTI community.  Nonetheless, LGBTI rights defenders are active in virtually every country seeking to improve conditions and respect for the human rights of the LGBTI community.
