Organization of American States condemns anti-gay and anti-trans discrimination

by on June 22, 2011  •  In Uncategorized

From Colombian attorney Germán Humberto Rincón Perfetti:

At the Forty-First General Assembly of the OAS in San Salvador on June seventh, all of the countries of the Americas and the Caribbean approved the resolution on “Human Rights, Sexual Orientation, and Gender Identity, which condemns discrimination, asking the countries to adopt measures that prevent, sancion, and erradicate it. They comdemned acts of violence and violations of human rights to intersex, transvestite, transexual, bisexual, lesbian, and gay people.

They invited the States to adopt a public policy against discrimination and to assure adequate protection to human rights defenders.

The Interamerican Commission of Human Rights and the Interamerican judicial Committee will prepare regional level studies, this being the greatest achievement in this fourth consecutive resolution.

[T]he head of the Vatican State lobbied against the resolution succeeding in getting Panama to leave a clarifying note on the heterosexual family and the subject of gender to only be understood as man and woman…  

This work was accompanied by a coalition of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans organizations from more than 20 countries who have been working for more than five years being present and making an impact on the Interamerican System.
