Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people face specific challenges in their global fight for equality that goes beyond marriage, advocates say.
Nearly a dozen countries have legalised same-sex marriage, including Ireland, which approved marriage equality through a popular vote.
In the United States, bans on same-sex marriage in 14 states are no longer enforceable in the wake of a historic Supreme Court ruling.
But while marriage recognition is an important issue for many, advocates say there are other basic rights that are being denied to LGBTI citizens in 2015.
