Category: Civil Rights and Freedoms

8th August 2013

The UN has launched a 12-month public education campaign designed to raise awareness of homophobic and transphobic violence and discrimination, and to foster respect for the human rights of LGBT people.

The aim of the "Free & Equal" campaign is to speed up a change in attitudes towards LGBT people by challenging negative stereotypes and debunking common misconceptions. The campaign website offers a host of materials, from fact sheets and articles to short videos, graphics and testimonies of LGBT people and their families, and will continue to produce new content over the course of the coming 12 months.
