This year a group of approximately 30 embassies will participate in the LGTB march that will take place in Stockholm this Saturday, 30th of July, starting at 1 pm. We have signed the following declaration in relation to this march:

Common Declaration in support of the Stockholm Pride 2016

On the occasion of the Stockholm Pride 2016, which will take place from 25th to 31st July 2016, we express our support for efforts to enhance the promotion and protection of human rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex persons in Sweden and to raise public awareness of the issues affecting the LGBTI communities in Sweden.

In this regard, we reaffirm the inherent dignity of each individual as expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Human rights are universal and apply to every human being, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

Respect for these basic principles, which are also enshrined in the UNSC statement condemning the attack for ”targeting persons as a result of their sexual orientation”, obliges States to protect all citizens from violence and discrimination and to ensure they enjoy equal opportunities. For this, we need to keep working together to create an environment free from discrimination where all persons enjoyment of human rights is guaranteed.

We pay tribute to the important work of the LGBTI communities in Sweden, as well as the work of all those in government and outside who seek to ensure Human Rights for LGBTI persons and end discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

LGBTI rights are human rights, which everyone should support and respect.
