Imagine being thrown in jail, just for who you love. Or being tortured because people think you have a disease that needs "curing." Every day, this is happening to LGBT+ people all over the world.

The good news is that together, we can stop it.

All Out is a global movement fighting for a world where NO ONE has to sacrifice their family, freedom, safety, or dignity because of who they are or who they love.

We mobilize thousands of people around the world to stand up for LGBT+ rights.

When a moment of crisis or opportunity comes up – like an anti-gay law going to a vote or a crackdown on a Pride march – All Out works closely with partners to come up with inspiring ways for our members to take action.

From signing a petition to joining a protest, from sharing on social media to making a donation, All Out members turn solidarity into action every single day.
