LGBTI: Time to break the taboo of immorality, embrace the difference

United Nations, Sep 26 (UNI) To tackle challenges, including hate crimes, faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI) community, the need of the hour is to educate people to change the mindset and embrace the difference.
Addressing a high-level event on extrajudicial, summary and arbitrary killings of LGBTI persons around the world, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet, said, ''We need to respect and embrace these differences – not criminalise them, not attack people, not deprive them of equal rights or the protection of the law, just because they are seen as ‘different’.''
Welcoming recent legislative changes that have happened in Chile - her own country, and India, Ms Bachelet noted that ''this important discussion is taking place all over the world.''
