In response to well-documented patterns of abuse towards LGBTI individuals, a distinguished group of international human rights experts met in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, to outline a set of international principles relating to sexual orientation and gender identity. The result was the Yogyakarta Principles: a universal guide to human rights which affirm various international legal standards with which many UN Member States have signed. They promise a different future where all people, regardless of their sexual orientations and/or gender identity, are born free and equal in dignity and rights can fulfil that precious birthright.
In order to make things better, APCOM created a short video called "From Yogyakarta With Love". With the hope that the short video encourages further exploration of the Principles, of the international human rights law upon which they are based, of the systems for monitoring progress, and of the implications of using a human rights-based approach in activist strategies. So, are we in this together? Let's learn about it and make the world even better.
