Two regional bodies in Europe and the Americas issued groundbreaking rulings this summer. On July 6, in the first ruling of its kind, the European Court of Human Rights determined Russia violated a transgender woman's parental rights.

On July 13, the European court followed up by ordering Russia to legally recognize same-sex relationships. The court ruled the autocratic country violated LGBTQ people's rights by denying three same-sex couples the right to register to marry.

Across the Atlantic Ocean, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights last month ruled Honduras was responsible for the 2009 murder of transgender activist Vicky Hernández, delivering more than justice for her family and transgender Hondurans.
