    Human Rights Council

    The UN Human Rights Council (HRC) is the main intergovernmental forum of the United Nations dealing with human rights issues.

    Activists and States have used various tools for promoting visibility, raising awareness and building support for LGBT rights. These tools include the opportunity to

    • submit written statements;
    • make oral interventions in the Council plenary;
    • organise parallel panels on topics of interest;
    • raise sexual orientation and gender identity issues during Council sessions with the High Commissioner for Human Rights;
    • engage in interactive dialogue with the UN Special Procedures; and
    • make individual or joint statements in support of sexual orientation and gender identity issues during general debate.

    The increasing mainstreaming of the rights of LGBTI persons has been reflected in the fact that LGBTI issues found mention in the Reports of many Special Rapporteurs including the Special Rapporteurs on the right to heath, and the protection of human rights during counter terrorism, as well as in state and civil society responses to the same.
