Third time lucky
Support needed on Brazilian Resolution before end of November 2004The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission has recently learned from colleagues at Human Rights Watch and the Associação Brasileira de Gays, Lésbicas e Transgêneros - ABGLT (Brazilian Association of Gay, Lesbian and Transgender people) that the government of Brazil is in critical need of support in order to continue as the lead sponsor of the Resolution on Sexual Orientation and Human Rights.
The Brazilian government will decide whether or not to go forward as the lead sponsor of the Resolution by the end of November 2004.
Please join the Associação Brasileira de Gays, Lésbicas e Transgêneros - ABGLT, IGLHRC, and Human Rights Watch in encouraging the government of Brazil to sponsor the Resolution and continue its courageous work to raise the issue of sexual orientation, gender identity, and human rights in international fora.
A broad coalition of activist organizations has been working to advocate for the passage of this resolution and for sexual rights in general. For a list of NGO Coalition partners, please see p. 18 of the 2005 CHR Action Kit.
