Nov 06, 2007 Quickie Link: UN: Support Global Gay Rights Charter
By vanrozenheim

(USA) - Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay will co-sponsor the New York event of the Yogyakarta Principles, a global charter for Gay rights, at the United Nations on November 7, 2007, Human Rights Watch said today. The Yogyakarta Principles, a landmark advance in the struggle to ensure basic human rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, were developed in response to well-documented patterns of abuse worldwide. Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson will address a side event on the principles, organized in parallel to the UN General Assembly. The forum, co-sponsored by Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, brings together nongovernmental organizations, UN representatives and state delegates for a discussion on the Yogyakarta Principles and the challenges of ending discrimination.
