Hi <<First Name>>, 

Miss me this morning?

I'm late - due to the fact that I've been so busy ensuring that my organization, OutRight Action International, has the funds to continue supporting the our common goal to protect and raise up LGBTIQ people around the world.

Read my special message below all your GAYography updates!

What are your new Years plans? Next Thursday I head to Puerto Vallarta to ring in 2017. But as the year winds down don't forget to start planning for Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend in DC, the largest US gathering of LGBTIQ people in Philly for Creating Change, and Gay Ski Week in Aspen!
Trump Claims to be pro-gay
The conversation is moving to the extreme right - with Tony Perkins condemning Tillerson for his move to help the Boy Scouts (a move personally opposed by the Sec-Designate) and calling for LGBT people to be fired, but at least the Trump team has noted that discrimination (against any group) will not be tolerated.

With incredible continued pressure and lobbying work, pro-LGBTIQ civil society - including OutRight - and governments successfully opposed a second challenge to the creation of the Independent Expert on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity at the UN. However, the position will likely be challenged again when budgeting is determined.

North Carolina's legislature failed to live up to its deal to repeal HB2 - after Charlotte agreed to recind its ordinance protecting LGBT people; business will likely continue to stay away!

Female world news reporter  Special Announcement!

Thanks for reading <<First Name>>!

I'm personally so honored that I work at OutRight - that combines all of my interests and skills - and lets me significantly contribute to positive change in the world.

Will you help OutRight prepare?

We will all be fighting here at home - but it's those around the world who will be the first to immediately feel the effects of a stop to progress in the US.

It's those living under despots and dictators - emboldened by Trump - who face draconian laws and police with no regard for human rights.

However, we have hope - and OutRight has done much recently that will directly affect those in our community:
  • OutRight led the fight against countries attempting to halt new UN Human Rights Council-mandated independent expert to explore LGBTIQ violence and discrimination.
  • By convening 50 global LGBTIQ activists, OutRight's 5th annual UN Advocacy Week further secured LGBTIQ rights at UN agencies with global reach and in governments willing to step up for equality.
  • OutRight assisted with emergency Hurricane relief in Haiti to marginalized LGBT-groups, unable to get access to aid due to discrimination.
  • OutRight extended assistance to Iraq's only LGBT Group, IraQueer, ensuring a safe and secure website as the only source of such information for the Iraqi community.
Today your annual gift will be doubled - thanks to an anonymous donor all gifts will be matched up to $25,000, specifically to ensure we can accurately assess data about the global LGBTIQ community.

Thank you for reading this - and keeping GAYography the best source for LGBTIQ travel and advocacy news!
