IASC petitions the United Nations: Stop gay executions – meanwhile calls for urgent travel warnings for LGBTIQA+

The International Anti-Slavery Commission is calling on the United Nations to demand their members:

  1. End executions of their LGBTIQA+ people
  2. Decriminalise (if not legalise) LGBTIQA+ activities
  3. Decriminalise sex before marriage between consenting adults
  4. Change legislation to end forced marriages of all their citizens, especially LGBTIQA+ forced to marry.
  5. End the use of LGBTIQA+ individuals as forced and slave labour in prisons, camps, mines, farms & factories.

URGENT TRAVEL WARNING:

In addition, we call on the United Nations to immediately issue a travel warning for all the countries listed below, so that LGBTIQA+ are warned not to travel to those countries.
