Human rights on vacation in Montreal

I am on holiday in Montreal and delighted to see the city blanketed with banners announcing “International Day Against Homophobia.” A visit to the website below reveals an amazing array of events being held in high schools and city streets from St-John’s to Vancouver, places in between and all around the world!

As stated on the “International Day Against Homophobia” website,

“the right to fight homophobia, and all different kinds of discrimination for that matter, is in itself a human right. In other words, everybody has the right to make sure that their and other people’s rights, including those of gays and lesbians, are respected.”

The information on the website speaks for itself. The site provides information on the scope of the human rights protection offered in Canada and in Québec in general, and as it pertains to sexual orientation, homophobia and discrimination in particular. Enough said.

Happy Anti-Homophobia Day!
