UN chief on LGBT rights: “Leave no one behind”

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on world leaders to use the newly-adopted Sustainable Development Goals to end the marginalization and exclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.

“There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals all based on a single, guiding principle: to leave no one behind,” the UN chief told Ministers and other delegates attending an event at UN headquarters co-organized by the UN Human Rights Office and the LGBT Core Group. “We will only realize this vision if we reach all people regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity ... Ending marginalization and exclusion of LGBT people is a human rights priority – and a development imperative."
