Standing up for the rights of

LGBTQ+ communities

In the iconic Lotus Sutra, Buddha is clear that He is the Father of ALL Beings and we must treat everyone with compassion and kindness as children of Buddha. Tolerance of LGBTQ peoples is widely practiced in Buddhist nations from Japan to Thailand - and we are committed to supporting their rights with sensitivity. We have also delivered inspiring messages for Gay Pride Week alongside many top gay leaders and academics and are committed to combating transphobia and homophobia across the world.
