OutSummit 2016

 A one day global summit for LGBTIQ human rights

This December, OutRight sponsors its 3rd annual UN Advocacy Week. During this time, dozens of international LGBTIQ activists come to New York for advocacy meetings with member states and agencies at the United Nations, including some governments that may not be receptive to human rights for LGBTIQ people at home. The week culminates on December 10th, 2016, with OutSummit at the City University of New York School of Law.
