The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission invites you to view the trailer of the soon to be released film "Courage Unfolds" highlighting the issues faced by LGBT people in Asia and encouraging the use of the Yogyakarta Principles as a tool to promote LGBT human rights.
The Courage Unfolds Campaign calls for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people to be protected by law, respected by society, and accepted by family. It is a call for the use of the Yogyakarta Principles as a tool to ensure that governments respect, protect and promote the human rights of all people - including LGBT people. This set of international legal principles addresses the application of international law to human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
The full 33-minute film will be released on May 17, 2011.
