The African Commission on Human and People’s Rights recently joined a historic multilateral agreement, along with 25 nations, the EU, UNAIDS and the UNDP:

As we work to advance human rights globally, we also remain committed to continue to promote and protect the human rights and fundamental freedoms of LGBTI persons in our own countries." Read More
