LGBT rights at the United Nations
Support Countries which have signed a General Assembly declaration of LGBT rights or sponsored the Human Rights Council's 2011 resolution on LGBT rights (96 members).
Oppose Countries which signed a 2008 statement opposing LGBT rights (initially 57 members, now 54 members).
Neither Countries which, as regards the UN, have expressed neither official support nor opposition to LGBT rights (44 members).
Non-UN member Countries that are not members of the UN.

Following initial outreach, campaign organizers received messages from multiple people around the world who expressed a desire, but also an inability, to publicly organize a LGBT events in their city or country. For this reason, a page for Remote Participation was created as a hub for online activity.

Here, you may ask questions, request assistance, voice concerns and collaborate with other online participants around the world. We welcome and encourage you to share the results of your work throughout the month of June here.
