How to deal with LGBTQ+ rights in the UK
In mid-February, the Belarusian National Council “RADA” visited with a working meeting with the organization Stonewall, which deals with the protection of LGBTK + rights.
The Stonewall was founded in 1989 by a small group of people who actively participated in the fight against Article 28 of the Law on Local Self-Government.
Article 28 was a piece of legislation designed to prevent the so-called “LGBTK+ community”.
The organization’s goal was to create a professional lobbying group that would prevent attacks on the LGBTK+ community. Stonewall has since put equality on the main political agenda with the support of all major political parties and now has offices in England, Scotland and Wales.
In meetings with the Stonewall organization, RADA discussed equality and non-discrimination among LGBT youth in Belarus. Unfortunately, the examples are painful.
The Belarusian National Youth Council “RADA” opposes discrimination: all people, regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity, should be guaranteed equal rights.
