LGBT VOICE is a registered National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) organization working to advance equality, diversity, education and justice. LGBT VOICE works to advance recognition of human rights based of sexual orientation and gender identity at the national level and promote the articulation of clear national norms and mobilize international pressure because our government failed to live up to those standards.

LGBT VOICE is struggling to create a national network to ensure that groups and individuals working on these issues do so not in isolation but as part of an effective coordinated national movement, will strengthen mechanisms for monitoring, documenting and reporting human rights violations and create opportunities for leading national stake holders to work effectively together to advance clearly articulated strategic goals.
