International development work takes place within communities deeply influenced by faith — so exploring the complex links between faith, sexual orientation and gender identity has been an illuminating exercise for the Sexual Rights in Development Community of Practice. They undertook an action learning project, supported by RDI Network, and looked at how these factors interplay in the current context of the ACFID Code of Conduct. The Code (at Quality Principle 1) recognizes that ‘marginalization due to gender identity… and sexual orientation’ are factors that can contribute to exclusion and inequity.

This Learning Paper encapsulates key findings and is designed to support ACFID members in their understanding of the ACFID Code and how it can be applied to their work.
