The Case for Decriminalization of Consensual Same-Sex Relations

In 2013, Parliamentarians for Global Action (PGA), the largest transnational network of individual parliamentarians informing and mobilizing its membership to advance human rights in more than 130 countries, launched its Global Parliamentary Campaign against Discrimination based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) to sensitize parliamentarians about equality and non-discrimination in international human rights law and encourage them to take legislative actions that guarantee these principles for all individuals regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity and expression and sex characteristics (SOGIESC).
