The Brazilian Government welcomes the adoption by the United Nations Human Rights Council, on June 30, in Geneva, of a resolution establishing a UN Independent Expert on protection against violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Brazil presented the text with support of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico and Uruguay.

The resolution represents a concrete step towards the UN recognition of the vulnerability of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons to violence and discrimination because of their sexual orientation and gender identity.

The Independent Expert will work in cooperation with governments and UN agencies to implement protection measures, assess existing violence and discrimination and provide advisory services, technical assistance, capacity-building and international cooperation.
