Description

While the last few decades have shown major progress when it comes to LGBTQ+ rights globally, queer people have had to continue to fight for them.

During Pride month there have been several high-profile instances of violence targeted at queer people. These events are stark reminders that the struggle for equal rights and safety for LGBTQ+ people continues.

NPR's Ari Shapiro spoke with three high-level diplomats assigned to LGBTQ+ issues – the U.S.'s Jessica Stern, Italy's Fabrizio Petri and Argentina's Alba Rueda – about whether life is improving for queer people globally.

In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment to help you make sense of what's going on in your community.
