Minorities, and in particular LGBTQI+ communities around the world, have often been used as a scapegoat for dictators and rising autocrats. Whether it is under the Taliban in Afghanistan or under Putin in Russia, the rights of LGBTQI+ people are among the first to get trampled. This panel will discuss the challenges faced by this community under authoritarian rule and how the democratic world can help champion their causes.
