Immigration Equality is America’s leading LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrant rights organization.

What We Do

For over 25 years, we have worked to secure safe haven, freedom, and equality for the LGBTQ and HIV-positive communities. Through direct legal services, policy advocacy, and impact litigation, we support immigrants who face discrimination based on who they are and whom they love.

Who We Are

Immigration Equality is helping to build a future where LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants and families are celebrated for making our country stronger. We are committed to creating a world where they can enjoy the freedom to live as their full selves and safe haven from violence.

Join Our Team

Immigration Equality is leading the effort to end discrimination in U.S. immigration law. We strive to reduce its negative impact on the lives of LGBTQ and HIV-positive people. Every day, we work to obtain asylum for those persecuted in their home countries based on their sexual orientation, transgender identity, or HIV-status.

Client Stories

Our clients are brave and resilient individuals fleeing violence and abuse because of who they are or whom they love. They come from over 80 countries to the United States seeking a safe place to call home. Here are a few of their stories.
