LGBTI equality and human rights in Europe and Central Asia

Urgent letter to the President of Portugal

ILGA-Europe, TGEU and OII Europe urge President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa to sign the historic law as adopted by the Portuguese parliament on 13 April. 

Two weeks ago, you remember we celebrated as Portugal voted to introduce self-determination and protection for intersex kids. 

The reform provides everyone with one of the most basic fundamental rights, the right to be trusted to know who they are.

Now, there’s a risk that a presidential veto could derail the progress that LGBTI activists have worked for years to secure.

ILGA-Europe, TGEU, OII Europe, our partners and allies say in unison – don’t turn back the clock!
