Equal Eyes presents a digest of international stories on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex issues. Information presented is carefully curated from a range of public and private sources to give readers a sense of the challenges that LGBTI people face. 

Equality comes in many forms, across political, social, and cultural issues and though we try to present a holistic picture, it is our hope that Equal Eyes is used as a jumping off point for readers to delve further into the stories.

For more information on the UN's Universal Periodic Review (UPR) (a mechanism of the Human Rights Council, which allows scrutiny of the human rights records of all UN States) check out ARC International's database on references to sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, sex characteristics in the UPR, Working Group sessions, and State responses. It is available in English, French, and Spanish.
