Photo: Nigeria, 76 African countries voted against upholding mandate of UN LGBT human rights monitor

The United Nations mandate of the Independent Expert on sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) has been safeguarded despite hostile contestation at the 71st Session of the 3rd Committee of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York City, on November 21. 
 
The UN General Assembly voted to retain the appointed LGBTI human rights monitor, Vitit Muntarbhorn, after a coalition of African countries moved to have his position suspended. Muntarbhorn from Thailand was appointed to the position in September after UN Human Rights created the role in June to have independent investigator look into abuses against LGBTI.


However, African countries questioned the legality of the mandate, arguing that sexual and gender identity should not be added to existing international human rights instruments. In early November, Botwana, on behalf of the African Group, presented a hostile resolution on the Human Rights Council Annual Report, specifically targeting the SOGI Independent Expert Mandate. The resolution contested the legality of the creation of the mandate, essentially arguing that SOGI are not universally recognized as human rights and are not codified in international law. The resolution called for an indefinite postponement of the mandate until consensus could be reached on the definition of SOGI and the legal basis to which the mandate was created, the African Group statement read:

"We are alarmed that the Council is delving into matters which fall essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of States counter to the commitment in the United Nations Charter to respect the sovereignty of States and the principle of non-intervention. More importantly, it arises owing to the ominous usage of the two notions: sexual orientation and gender identity. We wish to state that those two notions are not and should not be linked to existing international human rights instruments."

While all 193 countries in the UN General Assembly had the right to vote, only 178 exercised their vote, resulting in the passing of the LAC 8 amendment, leading to the failure of the hostile resolution and dissipation of the immediate threat against the establishment of the SOGI Independent Expert. In total, 84 countries voted in favor of the LAC 8 amendment, 17 countries abstained from voting, 77, including Nigeria voted against the amendment, a move the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright, described as 'a pity'

All they know is corruption and stealing, but can't uphold human right to sexuality and gender identity. Isn't it a shame and disgrace? That with all awareness about lgbt life, Nigeria still don't wanna move forward. I'm embarrassed and disgraced to be here and part of this.

Why is he calling out Nigeria, Switzerland voted against it also. Why didn't call them out cause it's not an African country.Don't force yours believes on people. The Demo-Crazy and Crazy Demo, Demonstration of crazy you people brought isn't yet to work for our good. Instead it has given room for corruption and obstruction of justices.

I believe respecting people's believe is part of democracy.

They should fuckoff, I wish to see them fight racism with the same zeal they are fighting for the right of LGBT.
We have so many areas we need their help and they weren't forthcoming, we need them to return our loots in their country and help us fight terrorism.

Very good news. There's nothing like sexual orientation. Their brains are simply missing one chromosome. dysfunctional people. All they need is some hot slaps for manual resetting of their brain damage.

Spiritual wickedness is high places but God pass all of una. Thank God for the uphold. Africans are suffering, and this is the only one bothering them. Too bad. We are not in support of LGBT. Pls stop forcing it on Africans. We don't need it. We have enough problems already.

Can you please shut the fuck up!! I don't hate anyone and I fancy both make and female but I hate how the lgbt community is trying to force their lifestyle down everyone's throat! I live in yankee and I am a lawyer and I voted for trump because I used to support everyone but right now enough is enough! The most annoying is pride day!! What da hell is that! Do straight folks march around showcasing their sexuality! Kissing any stranger and acting like clowns and dogs in heat on the streets!! Like what da fuck?!! If you are straight, bi or whatever it's no one's damn business, just stay in your lane and just don't commit fraud and don't print a rainbow flag and put it up your house door as some idiots do here!! It's just like someone flashing their achievements!! Jeez!!! Responsible straight, bi or gay folks don't even sleep around or flirt around or cross dress! Cross dressing is just so low standard and for lowlifes!! Gosh!! Lgbt community just get a life! I would never associate with them because they are just too pushy and want to force their way of life on everyone! Do straight people have a flag?!! Gosh I am so ashamed for the lgbt community!! Now every series on TV has an lgbt raw scene!! What happened to decency!!!

You meet a gay man before? You uneducated bitch, what intelligence do you have? Chatting shit about chromosomes, what do you know of biology or the workings of nature, stupid peasant, because you've got Internet access, you think it gives you the right to chat shit.

Now we know where to focus our attention, we've taken over the rest of the world, we're coming to snatch your fake weaves.

We will civilized you, and suppress your loudness. Do not fuck with the gays. See what we've achieved in just 3 years, since Thiefluck Jonothing attacked us? We're coming.

Let the game begin.

To the fake American lawyer, Trump will not dare come for the gays, further more, you're use of the English language is dubious any best, how can you be a practitioner, when you're clearly an enemy to the English language.

So what if gay people take pride in their sexuality? What's got to do with your life, or you're ability to function as a person?

If you don't approve of gay pride, don't attend gay pride events. Also everyday is straight pride, everywhere, we're constantly bombarded with the nonsense that straight sexual identity is perfect.

We have every right, to display, celebrate and express our experiences to the whole of humanity if we choose to do so.

Get lost, we're here to stay.
