70% of Commonwealth nations are bastions of homophobic prejudice, discrimination & violence.

What are Commonwealth leaders doing about it?

They are blocking LGBT+ rights from the Commonwealth summit agenda this week. Tell them it’s time to STOP blocking debate and STOP persecuting LGBT+ people.


We are demanding the decriminalisation of same-sex acts in the 36 Commonwealth countries that outlaw LGBT+ people, protection for LGBTs against discrimination & hate crime and for all governments to dialogue with their LGBT+ communities.

The vigil takes place when the Commonwealth summit is in progress in London & when LGBT+ delegates from across the Commonwealth are in London.

The 19 April vigil is supported by:
The Commonwealth Equality Network, Kaleidoscope Trust, Peter Tatchell Foundation, UK Black Pride, African Equality Foundation, Equality Network, African Rainbow Family, Movement for Justice, House of Rainbow, Out & Proud African LGBTI, Micro Rainbow, Africa Advocacy Foundation, Rainbow Across Borders, African Eye Trust, Manchester Migrant Solidarity
