An Open Letter to the Government of Canada, Regarding the Upcoming UN Resolution to Protect LGBT Rights

To whom it may concern,

I understand that there is but slim chance of humanity being shown by this, our-not-quite-elected conservative government. However, this Friday, Canada has a chance to prove itself the humane, generous and ethical country it somehow acquired a reputation of being.

This Friday, the United Nations Human Rights Council will vote on a resolution on human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

I am asking Canada to endorse this historic resolution and pursue any diplomatic measures necessary to make sure it is adopted; because no human being should face violence, torture, stigmatisation and abuse, on any grounds.

I trust that the future will prove a brighter place, where people of all kinds will live free and happy and safe. Don't let Canada delay that future.

I remain hopeful,
