This paper is a response to the 17 new Sustainable Development Goals, an agreement by 193 countries at the United Nations to end poverty and inequality by 2030. The SDGs were agreed in September, on the basis that they would include everyone, without discrimination, and would ‘leave no one behind’. According to Stonewall, the SDGs could have gone further by explicitly calling for LGBT equality. This guide demonstrates some of the ways LGBT equality can be achieved. It looks at seven of the 17 goals and highlights the challenges LGBT people face. It then showcases some of the work that is already being done worldwide to make sure LGBT people are fully included and have their needs met . It also suggests practical actions for organisations working on different development issues.
