The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) published a new guidance on the impact of COVID-19 on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. The guidance includes a detailed explanation of why LGBTI people may be particularly vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic and identifies some of the key actions that states and other stakeholders can take to ensure the rights of LGBTI people are protected and that LGBTI people are not subjected to discrimination.

The IUF LGBTI Workers & Allies Committee fully endorses the content of this guidance. Please find here the two-page guidance of OHCHR.
