Religious Communities affirming LGBTIQ People around the World

Submitted by on – No Comment


CSBR is a co-sponsor of Religious Communities affirming LGBTIQ people around the World, a side event at the upcoming 41st session of the UN Human Rights Council taking place Tuesday, 2 July 2019, from 2:30 – 4:00pm, at the UN Headquarters, Geneva, Conference Room IX.

To attend this event you will need a valid accreditation to access the UN or a UN grounds pass.

Human rights organizations, including LGBTIQ groups and faith-based actors, alongside State actors and UN representatives, have been working steadily for many years to promote inclusive faith-based messages.

This side event seeks to amplify the efforts of people of faith and share the realities lived by individuals and communities from different contexts around the world, particularly from key affected contexts (mostly in the Global South), and most especially, inclusive religious experiences and interpretations. This side event aims to highlight how different religious institutions, from different traditions and contexts, include and affirm the rights of LGBTIQ people around the world. These stories stand in stark contrast to the regressive and exclusionary narratives often heard at the UN.
