U.N. campaigns against 76 countries’ anti-gay laws

“You won’t believe what’s illegal in 76 places,” says the U.N. Human Rights Office as part of its Free & Equal campaign seeking recognition of human rights for LGBT people.

The campaign notes, “Relationships that are consensual and loving are still a crime all around the globe. Share if you believe in a world that is free and equal.”

Free & Equal is described as “an unprecedented United Nations global public education campaign for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality.”

“A project of the United Nations Human Rights Office being implemented in partnership with the Purpose Foundation, Free & Equal will raise awareness of homophobic and transphobic violence and discrimination, and promote greater respect for the rights of LGBT people everywhere.  The campaign will engage millions people around the world in conversations that will help promote the fair treatment of LGBT people and generate support for measures to protect their rights.”
