Strengthening Support to LGBTIQ Adolescents

Policy report on the rationale and scope for strengthening support to adolescents who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex or questioning.

This policy report forms one part of a broader scoping exercise on why and how Plan International could strengthen its programme advocacy and institutional support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning (LGBTIQ) adolescents. 

The scoping exercise also included mapping and analysing the legal, social and other challenges and opportunities facing LGBTIQ adolescents in the world. 

During the process, many of the findings from this broader scoping were found to have meaning and value for other organisations and institutions who are considering how to progress in relation to LGBTIQ adolescents. 

This policy report is presented with the intention of sharing learning and promoting discussion amongst CSOs, NGOs, governments, donors and the international development community at large.
