This is just an update for those who read my earlier post about Homosexuality and the International Community.
The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission have received ECOSOC UN Status.
After their hard battle with seemingly never-ending deadlocks to their success, the ECOSOC voted in favour of the US lead resolution to grant the IGLHRC the status they have worked so hard for. The resolution came at a vote of 23 in favor, 13 against, and 13 abstentions and 5 absences. This vote makes the IGLHRC the tenth organization working primarily for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) human rights to receive UN Status. It is hoped this success is a big step to furthering Homosexual rights in the international community.
As Cary Alan Johnson stated
Today’s decision is an affirmation that the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people have a place at the United Nations as part of a vital civil society community
So a big well done to International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission for winning their three-year battle.
