A message from the UN’s Independent Expert
The impact of COVID-19 is being felt acutely around the world. However, the virus and the implementation of measures to control it are disproportionately impacting certain groups and individuals. The UN Independent Expert on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity, Victor Madrial-Borloz, has recorded this message for the CFNHRI to mark the launch of our Beyond Tolerance film. It highlights the challenges faced by LGBTI people during this time, and how National Human Rights Institutions can respond.
