LGBTI rights

Violence and discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex persons and their organisations remain widespread around the world, as does the criminalisation of advocacy for LGBTI rights.

Building on our leading role in developing the Yogyakarta Principles on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and the YP plus 10, and in contributing to the creation and renewal of a UN expert dedicated to these issues, our work with LGBTI rights defenders strengthens international and regional protections against discrimination and supports them in advocating for the implementation of these standards on the ground.
