OSCE rejects manifesto on homosexuality, transgenderism

Catholic World News - July 19, 2013

In a 24-3 vote, the Organization for Security and Cooperation of Europe (OSCE) has declined to adopt the Yogyakarta Principles, a 2006 manifesto that would enshrine homosexuality and transgenderism in international human rights law.

With several UN officials among its signatories, the Principles call upon states to “take all appropriate action, including programs of education and training, with a view to achieving the elimination of prejudicial or discriminatory attitudes or behaviors which are related to the idea of the inferiority or the superiority of any sexual orientation or gender identity or gender expression.”
