Who are ReportOUT?
ReportOUT is a global SOGIESC (sexual orientation, gender identity, expression and sex characteristics) human rights organisation based in Gateshead, United Kingdom. Established in 2019, with a team of passionate and committed volunteers and Trustees, both national and international, we research, monitor and document the lived experiences of SOGIESC people through using our global network of state based and grassroots organisations. We do not use traditional LGBTQI+ identity politics and we have a firm ideology that a human rights standpoint is important to advance social change.
