28/11/2010 // Is enough being done for LGBT rights?
This week we will be taking a look at LGBT rights after a UN resolution was amended 79 votes to 70 to remove references to sexual orientation on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions. Simply put it means that there can be little protection for those who are threatened with execution due to their sexual orientation. In the US a survey of over 7000 trans people found 41% had attempted suicide all this after several students killed themselves after taunts for being gay earlier this year. The question is have we done enough for LGBT rights? If not where do we go from here?
