The State Department has launched a fund that seeks to bolster LGBT rights around the world. A press release the State Department released on Friday says the Global LGBTQI+ Inclusive Democracy and Empowerment (GLIDE) Fund will “provide up to $5 million … to facilitate the participation and leadership of LGBTQI+ community members in democratic institutions.” The GLIDE Fund is a program under the Global Equality Fund, a public-private partnership the U.S. helped launch in 2011 that seeks to promote LGBT rights around the world. A State Department spokesperson earlier this week told the Washington Blade the Swedish International Development Agency and the U.S. provided the GLIDE Fund’s initial funding.
