[statement] International Day against Homophobia, BiphoBIa and Transphobia

"No one left behind: equality, freedom and justice for all"

The theme of this year’s International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia[1], ‘Leave No One Behind: Equality, Freedom and Justice for All’, underscores the urgent need to address the persistent discrimination, violence, and marginalisation faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ+) persons worldwide.

Almost a decade after the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development made ‘Leave No One Behind’ a defining principle of our collective actions for positive change, we see welcome progress. As of late 2023, had taken proactive measures to safeguard the rights of LGBTIQ+ persons. Legal reforms in 35 UN Member States have ushered in full marriage equality for same-sex couples.
