Pacific Women Thematic Brief: Ending Discrimination on the Basis of Sexuality, Gender Identity and Expression

Pacific Women Support Unit

In the Pacific, diverse populations contribute to Pacific communities at local and national levels, with their own preferred terms for people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) including lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or gender diverse, or intersex (LGBTI) people.

This Thematic Brief provides information and analysis about equality for people with diverse SOGIESC in the Pacific Islands region, also referencing the Pacific’s involvement in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for which a key pillar is to “leave no one behind.” The SDGs recognise that to eradicate poverty and achieve sustainable development there is a need to address all people in society including marginalized groups and vulnerable populations, such as LGBTI people who may be discriminated based on their sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC).
