The LGBTI Global Development Partnership (LGBTI-GDP) is a first-of-its-kind public-private partnership. It leverages the financial and technical contributions of corporations, bilateral donors, foundations, NGOs, and universities to support LGBTI human rights and development in 14 countries around the world. Funding and implementing partners include USAID; Sida; Arcus Foundation; Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice; Gay & Lesbian Victory Institute; Williams Institute; Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Rights; and the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. The LGBTI-GDP empowers LGBTI communities by strengthening the capacity of LGBTI leaders and civil society organizations; training LGBTI leaders to effectively participate in democratic processes and run organizations; conducting research to inform national, regional, and global policy and programs; and promoting economic empowerment through enhanced LGBTI entrepreneurship and business development.
