Fighting Homophobia to Make Kosovo More “Free and Equal”


15 May 2014 - The Universal Declaration of Human Rights promises a world where all people are guaranteed the same protections. But lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people have been subjected to violence and discrimination – simply because of who they are.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has said that the fight against homophobia is a core part of the broader battle for human rights for all.  In that context, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has launched an unprecedented global campaign, called “Free and Equal” Its goal is to raise awareness of homophobia and fight it through education.

 

In Kosovo, the situation remains challenging. But local civil society groups are working on the ground to change public perceptions and protect the rights of Kosovo’s LGBT community.  It is a long-term project — but one that needs to be done – so that Kosovo can be more inclusive – and a safer place for all its people.
