World conference on LGBT rights

The next World Conference of the International Lesbian and Gay Association, better known as ILGA, will be held in Geneva, from March 27 to April 3,2006. It will be organised by a coalition of Swiss LGBT groups.

The Conference will be held at the same time as the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, an international forum which has failed to this day to recognise us and our rights. It will be another opportunity to remind the UN of the imperative necessity to explicitly declare that sexual orientation and the free expression of gender identity are human rights.

Rights Australia is affiliated with ILGA, and is sending a two person delegation to this conference. For further information: Conference Website
