Statement by Ambassador Norland on the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (May 16)

Tomorrow is the 11th annual International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. This is a day when we recommit ourselves to the equality and dignity of all people, and reaffirm that human rights are universal. All people should have the opportunity to realize their fullest potential, and no one should be subjected to violence or discrimination, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. We join all those in Georgia working to mark this day peacefully.
