​The Equal Rights Coalition (ERC) was set up to develop the ways in which governments could coordinate their diplomatic efforts, share information, and work together at the international level to achieve LGBT equality. As ERC co-chair we are keen to expand the current 40-strong membership to include any country seeking to work with existing ERC members to promote and protect the human rights of LGBT people globally.
