Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights (RFSL, Riksförbundet för homosexuellas, bisexuellas och transpersoners rättigheter, formerly Riksförbundet för sexuellt likaberättigande) is a Swedish organization working for LGBT rights. It was founded in 1950, which makes it one of the oldest LGBT rights organizations in the world. It has currently about 6,000 members (2004) and has 28 regional offices spread over the country.

Pioneer members in the 1950s include Allan Hellman (1904-1982) and Eric Thorsell (1899-1980).

In July 2007 RFSL got official NGO status at the United Nations ECOSOC (United Nations Economic and Social Council). [1]
