Promoting and Protecting Human Rights: Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Sex Characteristics

This publication produced by the Asia Pacific Forum (APF) and the United Nations Development Programme Bangkok Regional Hub (UNDP) is part of an ongoing program of cooperation to strengthen the capacity of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in the region to work with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex communities and better advocate for their human rights.

The manual is enriched through materials, case studies and comments from members of the manual reference group and by APF member institutions.

The manual is a very useful resource that supports NHRIs with knowledge and understanding of these issues, as well as enables them to learn from the experiences of others. Please share with networks to help build capacity for LGBTIQ human rights education.
