UN commends Botswana on decriminalising same-sex relations

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres has welcomed the decision by Botswana’s High Court to decriminalise consensual same sex relations between adults. Guterres joins the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet who also praised the decision. Tuesday’s ruling is a major victory for LGBTQI and human rights advocates. And it comes just a month after a Kenyan court rejected attempts to repeal a similar colonial-era law.
The Joint UN Programme on HIV and AIDS has also welcomed the decision.
