Human Rights Defenders of the Commonwealth
As part of the Commonwealth Voices project, Pride House Birmingham compiled profiles of 16 inspirational individuals drawn from the five continents whose contributions to defending LGBTIQ+ human rights have helped to change citizens' lives for the better.
We presented these profiles as factsheets in the exhibition room at the main Pride House to improve visitors' awareness and understanding of the important work being done by activists on the ground across the nation states.
The information for each factsheet was drawn from various sources and in the majority of instances, was approved and signed off by the subject.
