Same-sex orientation and wide-ranging gender identities and expressions are being depicted more often in social media, movies, and television. While a positive, unfortunately this often hides the fact that LGBTQIA+ individuals continue to battle for human rights, understanding, and acceptance — a struggle that varies considerably by country, region, and city. Our Human Rights Conference is structured to understand our challenges and share best practices that have produced progress and lasting change. The topics will embody the WorldPride Orlando 2026 theme of “Transformation through Diversity.”
The three-day Human Rights Conference will be held in the Pulse Museum, slated to be completed by 2026. This striking facility, close to the Pulse Memorial and Orlando Health Survivors Walk, will instill the sessions with a unique poignancy and inducement for positive action.
