Formed in 2011, the Human Dignity Trust is the only organisation working globally to use strategic litigation to defend the human rights of LGBT people. Based in London, our team of lawyers, researchers and communications specialists work with activists and lawyers across the world.

We are always led by the needs of local activists, providing them at their request with sophisticated technical legal assistance and related support. Working with a network of 25 of the world’s largest law firms and leading UK and international human rights barristers, we have connected local activists and civil society organisations across five continents with almost £22 million worth of pro bono technical legal assistance.
