​Outcry Over Ban of LGBT Groups From AIDS Summit

Human rights advocates from major Western nations and organisations protest against a United Nations decision to bar 22 LGBT affiliated groups from taking part in a high-level AIDS conference

Human rights advocates from major Western nations and organisations are protesting against a United Nations decision to bar 22 lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) affiliated groups from taking part in a high-level United Nations AIDS conference next month.
 
Because the 193-member U.N. General Assembly operates by consensus, the countries calling for the ban - Russia, Tanzania and 52 countries in the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation – are not required to give an explanation.
 
However, many see the move as blatant discrimination against groups that represent some of the communities most strongly affected by HIV/AIDS.
