Recently, I told you about the attempt by Russia to block a law allowing UN married LGBT employees receive the same benefits as others. And although Russia has failed!
In July 2014, the United Nations (UN), through the voice of its Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, announced the opening of benefits to married same-sex couples, or in a civil union, even though the country or the state in which they live does not recognize them.
Today, Russia tries to block the measure that could benefit 44,000 employees.
The 27th World Conference of ILGA (International Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans & Intersex Association), which is the largest association for the defense of the LGBTI rights in the world, will take place from October 27 to 31, 2014 in Mexico City.
Yesterday, we had focused on Asia after a poll of the most welcoming countries for the LGBT community. The Philippines had led the way, some of you have pointed out elsewhere the beauty of Filipinos women that cannot be denied. Today, end of suspense, here is the result for the rest of the world!
The United Nations has recognized same-sex marriages of its staff.
