France’s LGBT+ Rights Support

France has recently established a support fund aimed at promoting the rights of LGBT+ individuals internationally. Catherine Colonna, the Foreign Affairs Minister, announced this initiative on the 15th anniversary of the United Nations LGBTQI Group. Anne-Claire Legendre, spokesperson, emphasized the significance of this move, noting that this is the first time a French Foreign Affairs Minister has joined this group. With a budget of 2 million euros, this fund will assist French embassies in supporting defenders of the rights of LGBT+ people around the world. France also continues to advocate for the global decriminalization of homosexuality and the protection of LGBT+ people’s rights.

France’s Commitment to LGBT+ Rights

France has always been at the forefront of defending human rights, and its commitment to the rights of LGBT+ individuals is no exception. In 2022, Jean-Marc Berthon was appointed ambassador for LGBT rights, a first in French diplomacy. Despite advancements, the UN reports that 77 countries still criminalize same-sex relations, exposing these individuals to various risks, including the death penalty in some countries.
