Protesters take part in March against the Trump administration's perceived anti-LGBT agenda
The revelation has fuelled fears that the Trump administration will roll back gay rights.
The Center for Family and Human Rights (C-FAM) was named this week by the US State Department to attend the UN's Commission on the Status of Women, an annual set of high-level meetings on women's equality and empowerment.
C-FAM has been listed as an anti-LGBT hate group by non-profit civil rights group the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for at least five years, SPLC spokesperson Heidi Beirich said.
"The way you get on our anti-gay hate list is basically if you demonise the gay population," Ms Beirich said. "That's how they ended up on the list."
The move comes as decisions by President Donald Trump's new administration raise fears of a rollback of LGBT rights.
