I would like to review this map.
I looked at the map. What it doesn’t do is list in consecutive descending order which country has more rights and protections for LGBT citizens. I suspect the UK won’t be number one, but maybe in the top five.
There is a notion out there that countries with equal marriage are portrayed as having full equality, not necessarily the case.
ILGA is a L&G organization that decided to claim expertise in everyone else’s areas in order to get funding from the EU, which is now its largest source of funds. In return it has a monopoly in representing all sexual minorities to the EU Commission, even though there is no valid mechanism to link us in the various nations to them in Brussels. This conference is their supposed validation of their representative status, but those attending are purely self-selected, and not representative.
Its terribly like all those international workers’ conferences of old where the presence of some lone person who had once visited a country would be trotted out as showing the workers of that country were in total solidarity to the death.
Worst is claiming to represent Intersex, when there are large, representative groups for most intersex conditions who refuse to have anything to do with ILGA because they are straight and have no gender issues – but many health and human rights concerns.
