    San Francisco Bay Area LGBT community leaders A. Sparks, Julie Dorf, and Deb Kinney were among the participants at the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) Asia conference held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, from November 28–December 2, 2022. ILGA, founded in 1978, has 1869 member organizations representing 169 nations around the globe and works closely with the United Nations.

    The conference included sessions on multiple topics, including matters related to interfaith, humanitarian, and labor practices, as well as topics concerning women, youths, those who are non-binary, research, marriage, and more.

    ILGA made headlines recently due to the Association submitting an open letter on the Qatar World Cup to FIFA president Gianni Infantino protesting sanctions imposed regarding LGBTQ-supporting OneLove armbands.
