GATE campaigns globally for trans,
gender diverse and intersex equality

Global Action for Trans Equality (GATE) is an international advocacy and expert organization focused on gender identity, gender expression, and sex characteristics. We work towards justice and equality for trans, gender diverse, and intersex (TGDI) communities.

Rooted in our movements, we work collaboratively with strategic partners at the global level to provide access, knowledge, and resources.

GATE is registered as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the USA.
