Robert Biedroń to address ILGA Europe’s Annual Conference

Robert Biedron (Poland, SOC), General Rapporteur on the rights of LGBT people, will address ILGA Europe’s Annual Conference in Zagreb through a video message to be screened at the closing plenary session on 26 October 2013.

ILGA Europe is the European section of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association. The theme of its 2013 conference is “Family matters! Reaching out to hearts and minds”.

In this video, the General Rapporteur presents the political priorities of his mandate: tackling violations of freedom of expression, in particular as concerns regulations banning so-called homosexual propaganda; promoting legislation consistent with the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights on LGBT-related cases, addressing discrimination on grounds of gender identity and discrimination of lesbian, bisexual and transgender women.
