Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December – the day on which the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Human rights are our basic rights or freedoms. They include our right to live, our right to health, education, freedom of speech and thoughts, and equal rights.
We’re fortunate in the United Kingdom, but there is still a long way to go, globally, for LGBT+
Only 50 countries allow trans people the legal right to change their name and gender. In many more countries, LGBT+ people face discrimination, violence and a whole host of other human rights violations, just for being themselves.
Nearly 70 years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted, it is clear that there is still a long way to go to ensure human rights are enjoyed equally by all.
With protests like Pride, we can show everybody that we will continue to fight for equality for all, until the very end!
Help us continue to fight for our rights…
