Respect for diversity is a core UN value, and respect for human rights is a fundamental UN principle. UN staff are required to show respect for the rights of everyone – including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people or LGBTI persons. Discrimination and violence against individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity, or because they are intersex, violate UN standards and hinder the achievement of UN goals. We all need to understand how we can integrate respect for the human rights of LGBTI people into our lives and into our work.
