The 30th ILGA World Conference will take place in May 2022 under the theme: "LGBTIQ youth: future present change": hundreds of LGBTIQ human rights defenders from all over the world will gather in LA Long Beach, California, United States.
The event will be hosted by the It Gets Better Project, an organization with a mission to uplift, empower, and connect LGBTQ youth around the globe.
