LGBT rights at the United Nations
Discussions of LGBT rights at the United Nations have mainly centered on resolutions in the United Nations General Assembly and the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) regarding the topic. Since its founding in 1945, the United Nations had not discussed LGBT rights (regarding equality regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity) until December 2008, when a Dutch/French-initiated, European Union-backed statement supporting LGBT rights was presented to the General Assembly. The statement, originally intended to be adopted as resolution, prompted an Arab League-backed statement opposing it. Both statements remain open for signature, and neither of them has been officially adopted by the General Assembly.On June 17, 2011, South Africa initiated a resolution in the UNHRC requesting that the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights draft a report detailing the situation of LGBT citizens worldwide to follow up and implementation of the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action. The resolution passed 23 to 19, with the three abstentions being Burkina Faso, China, and Zambia. It was the first such resolution and was hailed as ""historic"".The report, which came out in December 2011, documented violations of the rights of LGBT people, including hate crimes, criminalization of homosexuality, and discrimination. High Commissioner Navi Pillay called for equitable ages of consent; comprehensive laws against discrimination based on sexual orientation; prompt investigation and recording of hate crime incidents; the repeal of laws criminalizing homosexuality; and other measures to ensure the protection of LGBT rights. The text of the report from the UNHRC is dated on 17 November 2011.Separately, it was announced in July 2014 that the United Nations (as an employer) would extend equal benefits to its employees who have entered into same-sex unions in jurisdictions where they are legal.
