OutRight Action International 2022 United Nations Religion Fellowship: (Deadline 23 January 2022)

OutRight Action International 2022 United Nations Religion Fellowship: (Deadline 23 January 2022)

The OutRight United Nations Fellowship is a 12-month program that supports LGBTI human rights defenders from around the world to harness the New York-based United Nations (UN) system to add value to their existing work. The program is designed to support existing work defending LGBTI people from the impact of religiously motivated violence and discrimination in the African, Caribbean and Latin American regions.

The aim of the UN Fellowship is four-fold:

  1. Facilitate the use of New York-based UN spaces for LGBTI activists from Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America to enhance their networks and identify new entry points for progressing the protection and promotion of LGBTI human rights in their country.
  2. Increase visibility and engagement of LGBTI human rights defenders from the Global-South within high-level UN political forums, specifically in response to religiously-motivated homophobia and transphobia.
  3. Build the capacity of New York-based UN and State representatives in the human rights of LGBTI people to assist in the protection and promotion of these rights at the international level.
  4. Strengthen relationships with diplomats in the New York-based UN system.

The Fellowship will operate around in-person participation at five key New York-based advocacy opportunities: The Commission on the Status of Women, the High-Level Political Forum on the Sustainable Development Goals, UN General Assembly High Level week, OutRight’s annual Week of UN Advocacy and OutRight’s OutSummit Conference. The Fellowship will include advocacy training.
