17/05/2016 - Declaração da Alta Representante, Federica Mogherini, em nome da União Europeia, por ocasião do Dia Internacional contra a Homofobia, a Transfobia e a Bifobia
Por ocasião do Dia Internacional contra a Homofobia, a Transfobia e a Bifobia, a UE reitera o seu firme empenhamento na igualdade e dignidade de todos os seres humanos, independentemente da sua orientação sexual e identidade de género. Não obstante os recentes progressos registados em todo o mundo, cerca de 80 países continuam a criminalizar as relações entre pessoas do mesmo sexo. Em muitos lugares, a discriminação e a violência contra lésbicas, gays, bissexuais, transexuais e intersexuais verifica‑se diariamente.
