In 2013, the LPA joined efforts with the Lebanese Psychiatric Society (LPS) and other non-profit organizations to advocate for the rights of LGBT individuals in Lebanon. The LPA issued a joint statement with the LPS stating that homosexuality is not a disease and does not require reparative treatment. LPA continues to support organizations in Lebanon raising awareness and lobbying for the rights of LGBT people in Lebanon.
