International leaders from across the world will converge at the Miami Beach Convention Center for the three-day conference (26-28 May), which will offer a world view of Human Rights and discussions about health and wellness, social justice and promoting inclusivity in sports.

Lynne Robbins, World OutGames Miami Diversity and Human Rights Director, said: “With political uncertainty in the United States and abroad, it is even more important to maintain open dialogue and shared points of view to strive for unity and inclusiveness for all,

“This conference offers an in-depth global perspective on subjects, including LGBT rights, and should be attended by anyone who wants to have a voice and desires equality and acceptance.”

Throughout the three days, over 35 topics will focus on three specific tracks: Promoting Inclusivity in Sports (LGB, Intersex, Trans*, Women), Health & Wellness (HIV, Disability, Sexuality, Body Politics, Human Trafficking) and Social Justice (Labor/Trade Unions, Religion, LGBTQI Criminalization, Workplace Issues).

The World OutGames is a 10-day event which brings together thousands of participants with over 450 activities in three main areas – sport, culture and Human Rights – licensed by the Gay and Lesbian International Sport Association.
