International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia And Biphobia (No. 2)

EDM number 1283 in 2017-19, proposed by Liz Saville Roberts on 17/05/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Equality, Gender recognition and Sex discrimination.

That this House recognises 17 May as International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia; highlights the significance of marking this day to raise awareness of the persecution, discrimination and violence faced by many LGBT people around the world; notes that in 37 of the 53 Commonwealth countries homosexuality is illegal, along with many other countries in which being LGBT is punishable by criminalisation, public beatings, enforced sterilisation and the death penalty; further notes with alarm that in the UK attacks against people from the LGBT community are growing, despite evidence that four in five attacks on LGBT people still go unreported; highlights the crucial importance of recognising and championing the human rights of all people regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity; and calls on the Government to ensure greater protections for minority groups within society.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
