AMBASSADOR'S BLOG - IDAHO IN UKRAINE

On the eve of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) I’m delighted to meet in Kyiv old friend Clare Dimyon, a British human rights activist whom I last met in June 2009.

At that time, Clare was visiting Ukraine to coincide with the Second National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) conference in Kyiv.  This time, she is attending the 4th annual Mykolayiv Rainbow Spring gathering of LGBT people.

The UK believes that LGBT people are entitled to enjoy the full range of human rights, without fear of discrimination or criminalisation; and plays an active role in promoting the rights of LGBT people internationally.  So I’m pleased to be able to meet Clare again; to pass on a message of support for the Mykolayiv Rainbow Spring gathering; and to send warm greetings to all concerned.  Good luck for a great event.
