It’s time to hone in on a global topic — human rights.

The 4th Global LGBTQI Human Rights Conference is set to take off May 26 through 29 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. It will be held through World OutGames Miami, a 10-day event focusing on sports, human rights and culture.

“With political uncertainty in the United States and abroad, it is even more important to maintain open dialogue and shared points of view to strive for unity and inclusiveness for all,” said World OutGames Miami Diversity and Human Rights Director Lynare Robbins in a press release. “This conference offers an in-depth global perspective on subjects, including LGBT rights, and should be attended by anyone who wants to have a voice and desires equality and acceptance.”

Speakers from around the world — including Cuba, Thailand, the United Kingdom, Miccosukee Reservation and more — will open a discussion about human rights.

According to the release, over 25 speakers will be at the event, ranging from activists to researchers and scholars. They will hold in-depth discussions about health and wellness, social justice and promoting inclusivity in sports.

Among special guests are Sylvia Acevedo from the United States, Sayato Nakata from Japan, Yahia Zaldi from Algeria and more. Local speakers include bisexual activist Luigi Ferrer of Pridelines in Miami.
