LGBTI Rights Remains Contentious Issue At U.N. Status Of Women Meeting

Inter Press Service: ‘Hate Group’ Inclusion Shows U.N. Members Still Divided on LGBT Rights
“A group designated as a hate group [by the Southern Poverty Law Center] for its ‘often violent rhetoric’ against LGBTI rights was an invited member of the United States Official Delegation to the annual women’s meeting, say rights groups. … Including C-Fam on the U.S. delegation reflects ongoing disagreement between U.N. member states — and even within U.N. member states domestically — about the importance of including LGBTI rights within the U.N.’s work…” (Rowlands, 3/20).
