Its membership was suspended until the next Annual Conference of ILGA in June 1995 when the matter could be dealt with in accordance to ILGA's constitution, namely, expulsion.
VSG left ILGA in April 1995 and in 1998 dissolved itself.
ILGA is represented in 110 countries across the world.
ILGA is accredited by the United Nations and has been granted NGO Ecosoc consultative status.
Protests often made the conferences that the organization held more dramatic and having more negative attention then would've been wanted.
A problem encountered was financial in nature which recently came to a head when an ILGA conference actually had to be postponed because of lack of funding.
The closing statement affirmed the existence of intersex people, reaffirmed "the principles of the First and Second International Intersex Fora and extend the demands aiming to end discrimination against intersex people and to ensure the right of bodily integrity, physical autonomy and self-determination".
ILGA was founded as the International Gay Association (IGA) on 8 August 1978, during the conference of the Campaign for Homosexual Equality in Coventry, England, at a meeting attended by 30 men representing 17 organisations from 14 countries.
It changed its name to the International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) in 1986.
However, that status was suspended in 1994 after a campaign led by Jesse Helms focussing on NAMBLA's membership of ILGA.
Following this, by a vote of 214-30, ILGA expelled North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), Vereniging MARTIJN and Project Truth in early 1994 because they were judged to be "groups whose predominant aim is to support or promote pedophilia." In October 1994, the executive committee of ILGA suspended the membership of VSG (Association for Sexual Equality), a gay group in Munich, Germany, due to its vocal solidarity with NAMBLA and its refusal to purge pedophile members.
ILGA applied to have its consultative status reinstated in 2000, One of the issues of concern was whether it was possible to verify that links with NAMBLA had effectively been severed due to ILGA not publishing its organisation membership list given fears for the safety of members living in countries where homosexuality is still criminalised.
