Webinar: Visible.lgbt: Innovation on Documenting LGBTQ+ Rights Violations in Mexico
The collection of data related to at-risk populations in Latin America remains a pending obligation for the region's national governments. With respect to LGBTQ+ people, international bodies have revealed that the existent data do not reflect the full dimensions of the violence and discrimination experimented by queer persons in the Americas. Visible is a non-governmental platform developed by a Mexican NGO, with the support of Georgetown University, that allows the collection of violent and discriminatory incidents against LGBTQ+ people, being a good example on how ICTs can counter societal misinformation and provide information to decision makers to create data-driven inclusive policies.

Till date, Visible has collected over 1,600 reports across the country, becoming Mexico's largest repository of data on discrimination and violence against LGBTQ+ people in the country. Moreover, Visible is now a tool employed by civil society, elected officials, governments, media and international bodies for purposes such as advocacy, litigation, policy formulation and law initiatives. On November 16, 2022, Visible was declared a winner of the Innovation in Transparency Contest organized by the National Institute of Access to Information and Personal Data Protection.
