417 NGOs from 105 countries, including GPF, signed the Joint Statement on Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity & Expression and Intersex Status which was delivered on Monday 29 June 2015 at the 29th UN Human Rights Council. The statement urges the Council to act now and end the violence and discrimination suffered by LGBTI people around the world. It welcomes the resolution passed by the Council in September 2014 but expresses concern about severe human rights violations from State and non-State actors because of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, or intersex status. The 417 NGOs ask for systemic responses from the Human Rights Council to the systemic violations of human rights.
