Support Us

Across the world, our communities face discrimination, violence and often death as a result of marginalisation and stigma. Together we can help to change this reality.

Join our fight for human rights! ↗

GATE is an international advocacy organization working towards justice and equality for trans, gender diverse and intersex communities. Rooted in our movements, we work collaboratively with strategic partners at the global level to provide knowledge, resources and access to UN mechanisms and bodies. We give voice to and empower communities affected by issues of gender identity, sex characteristics and bodily diversity by creating critical knowledge, providing organizational resources and forging connections with UN bodies, networks and key organizations. 

GATE envisions  a world free from human rights violations based on gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics. Our strategy is to transform the landscape of global advocacy, knowledge creation and resource distribution through critical inclusion of trans, gender diverse and intersex movements at all levels of political, legal and socio-economic processes.

GATE believes in the emancipatory power of trans, gender diverse and intersex activists:

  • We provide our communities with support, technical capacity and knowledge to enable them to politically mobilize on issues of gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics.
  • We produce and share critical knowledge, advocate for increased and more accessible funding for community-led efforts, monitor key international processes and facilitate community activists’ engagement with these processes.
  • We are committed to being fully accountable to our communities, to fighting for all forms of emancipation, justice and reparations, and to supporting activists’ development and wellbeing.
