UN and LGBT

United Nations headquarters in New York, USA.

Combined with the The United Nations Human Rights Office and UN Free & Equal program the world is truly embarking on a equal path for all.

No matter who you are – everyone deserves the same rights. The United Nations do everything in their power to protect, reinstate and create international laws to uphold everyone’s right to love who they want to love.

Headed by the High Commissioner for Human Rights – the UN’s most senior human rights official – the Office works to inform individuals of their human rights, identify and address human rights challenges, and assist governments, which are legally responsible for the protection of human rights, in fulfilling their human rights obligations.
