The Peter Tatchell Foundation (PTF) is an non-profit, nonpartisan organisation based in the United Kingdom and named after its director, human rights activist Peter Tatchell. It "seeks to promote and protect the human rights of individuals, communities and nations, in the UK and internationally, in accordance with established national and international human rights law" and its stated aims and objectives are "to raise awareness, understanding, protection and implementation of human rights, in the UK and worldwide".
The organisation works with a variety of human rights issues globally, such as homophobia, transphobia, sexism, gender inequality, racism, political freedom, censorship, religious discrimination, unjust detention, freedom of association, capital punishment, asylum and refugees, trade union rights, self-determination of oppressed peoples, torture, genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and poverty.
In 2012 the foundation gained funding from The Funding Network for three projects: "Casework & Advice", including adding an "Advice" section to its website; "Equal Love", campaigning on same-sex marriage and opposite-sex civil partnerships; and "Olympic Equality Initiative", working against sexism and homophobia in the Olympic movement.
The organisation was named after Peter Tatchell to honour his 50+ years of globally campaigning for human rights.
Activist Peter Tatchell started the Foundation as a company in 2011, which gained charitable status in 2018.
The charity's celebrity patrons include Sir Ian McKellen and Paul O'Grady.
