LGBTI Rights and the Integrity of the Human Rights Council

The Human Rights Council’s integrity and authority is being threatened by a group of States who want to indefinitely defer the mandate and work of the Independent Expert on Protection Against Violence and Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI).

FI supports the Human Rights Council and the Independent Expert in his mandate, and has issued a statement. You can read it here.

You can also take action and ask your government to stand by the HRC’s integrity and reject any attempt at undermining the mandate of the SOGI Independent Expert by visiting ILGA World’s Facebook note here
