Gay Rights are Human rights
The Sexual identity of a person remains as a reason of discrimination on world wide ground. Till 1992, homosexuality has been registered as an illness in the ICD- catalogue released by WHO. In more than 80 countries homosexuality nowadays is a reason for criminal prosecution, in seven countries it is even threatened with death penalty. The Heinrich Böll Foundation is supporting numerous LGBTI- activists and networks in various countries to spread information and to demand (human) rights.
