Demand Governments of the World Condemn LGBT Executions!

Act Now!

Demand that the Member States of the United Nations condemn extrajudicial, summary and arbitrary executions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people »

UN Votes on LGBT Lives:

This Monday, December 20th, the United Nations General Assembly will vote on whether to include protection for LGBT people in a crucial resolution on extrajudicial executions and other unlawful killings. This resolution urges States to thoroughly and promptly investigate all killings committed for any discriminatory reason, even on the basis of sexual orientation.
This is extremely important because it is the only UN resolution ever to include explicit reference to sexual orientation.
The resolution passed successfully for the past ten years. However in a UN committee just last month, a number of States proposed to remove the reference to sexual orientation. Shockingly, this amendment passed. Seventy-nine States voted to remove the reference to sexual orientation, 70 supported its retention, and 43 States abstained or did not vote. This amounted to a serious defeat for LGBT rights at the UN.
On Monday, we have an opportunity to turn this around. States will have the chance to restore the reference to sexual orientation – and hopefully extend it to also include gender identity – when the resolution is voted on by the full UN General Assembly.

Exija que los gobiernos del mundo condenen las ejecuciones de las personas de LGBT

Actúe Ya!

Solicite a los Estados condenar los asesinatos de personas, lesbianas, gays, bisexuales y transgénero en la resolución sobre ejecuciones extrajudiciales, sumarias y arbitrarias de la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas »

La ONU vota sobe las vidas de LGBT:

El próximo lunes, 20 de diciembre, la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas votará sobre si debe incluir o no una protección para las personas LGBT en una resolución fundamental sobre ejecuciones extrajudiciales y otros crimenes ilegales.
A lo largo de los últimos 10 años, dicha resolución ha instado a los Estados a "investigar en forma oportuna y en profundidad todos los asesinatos, también los cometidos por razones discriminatoria, entre ellas, la orientación sexual de una persona". Es la única resolución de la ONU que ha incluido alguna vez una referencia explícita a la orientación sexual.
El mes pasado, varios Estados propusieron una enmienda a esta importante resolución para eliminar la referencia a la orientación sexual. Lo perturbador es que dicha enmienda fue aprobada. Setenta y nueve Estados votaron a favor de eliminar la referencia a la orientación sexual; 70 votaron por que se conservara; 43 Estados se abstuvieron o no votaron.
No obstante lo anterior, este lunes 20 de diciembre los Estados tendrán la oportunidad de volver a incluir la referencia a la orientación sexual – y con suerte ampliarla para incluir también a la identidad de género – cuando la resolución se presente ante la Asamblea General de la ONU.

Exigez aux gouvernements du monde entier de condamner les exécutions LGBT!


Exigez que les États membres des Nations Unies dénoncent l'exécution extrajudiciaire, sommaire, et arbitraire de tout individu LGBT (lesbiennes, gays, bisexuels, ou transgenres) »

l'ONU vote sur les vies LGBT

Ce lundi 20 décembre, l’Assemblée générale des Nations unies votera sur le bien fondé d’inclure la protection des personnes LGBT dans une résolution cruciale sur les exécutions extrajudiciaires et autres meurtres illégaux.
Depuis dix ans, cette résolution a exhorté aux États « à enquêter rapidement et pleinement sur tous les meurtres, y compris… tous les meurtres commis pour des raisons discriminatoires, dont l’orientation sexuelle ». C’est la seule résolution de l’ONU à inclure une référence explicite à l’orientation sexuelle.
Juste le mois dernier, certains États ont proposé un amendement pour éliminer toute référence à l’orientation sexuelle de cette importante résolution. Chose étonnante, cet amendement a été adopté. Soixante-dix-neuf États l’ont appuyé, 70 ont voté pour garder la référence et 43 États se sont abstenus ou n’ont pas voté.
Cependant, les États auront l’occasion de réinsérer la référence à l’orientation sexuelle – et, espérons-le, de l’étendre pour inclure aussi l’identité de genre – lorsque la résolution sera présentée à l’Assemblée générale de l’ONU le lundi 20 décembre.

The mission of The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) is advancing human rights for everyone, everywhere to end discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. A non-profit, non-governmental organization, IGLHRC is based in New York, with offices in Cape Town and Buenos Aires. Visit for more information.

I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!
