LGBTI people have made tremendous progress globally in claiming their rights and promoting inclusive societies. The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOTB) is an opportunity to honor this progress and reflect on the path forward to achieving full equality of opportunity.

On May 18th, the World Bank commemorated IDAHOTB, convening a panel of government, civil society, and other partners on the importance of laws in advancing the rights of sexual and gender minorities globally. The event examined the role of inclusive laws and policies in supporting LGBTI people and included a discussion of the lessons learned and way forward from the Bank’s Equality of Opportunity for Sexual and Gender Minorities report.
