UN Human Rights Office Urges End to Homophobia, Promises ‘Free and Equal’ World: VIDEO


A striking new campaign video from the United Nations human rights office speaks directly about the oppression of LGBT people and features messages from Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay.

Says Pillay: "Every nation is obligated by international human rights law to protect all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from discrimination and violence."

Adds Ban and a chorus of voices: "The United Nations has one simple message to the millions of LGBT people around the world...You are not alone. LGBT rights are human rights. Together we will build a world that is free and equal,"
