Campaign: To encourage understanding of international LGBT rights

For those who are LGBT and living in Great Britain, laws put in place for their protection mean that they can live a safe and comfortable life.

 

However, around the world these rights still have a long way to go and in some places, LGBT people can even face the death penalty on the basis of their sexual orientation.

 

We never want people in the United Kingdom to forget that in other countries they could be severely persecuted for things that they may take for granted living in this country.

 

We also want LGBT people living in less tolerant places to know that they aren't alone and that there are people who care for their happiness and safety.

 

Campaigning to bring these laws to light, we hope to encourage those who live in Britain to remain educated on the discriminatory practices that exist against LGBT people in other countries.

Thanks to Adam, Rebecca and Samantha for helping me with this Fix.
