Mission

The International Resource Network (IRN) is a global network of researchers, activists, artists, and teachers sharing knowledge about diverse sexualities. With the work of our staff and the contribution of our members over the past 10 years, the IRN has emerged as a major source for knowledge and networking through our regional projects. We are organized through a structure of regional networks in Africa, Asia/the Pacific, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Middle East, and North America. The IRN website shares resources and information about the regional projects while also linking people who do work on diverse sexualities around the world. The IRN also supports local coordinators and regional boards who facilitate communication and special programs among community leaders, activists, and researchers within these regions.
