“We are not demanding new or special rights for people who identify as 2SLGBTQI+. We are just asking for the rights of all people to be respected.”

Stated Esdra Sosa, director of the Asociación 2SLGBTQI+ Arcoiri, during the launch of the documentary We are. Voices of diversity (Somos. Voces de la diversidad).

The film was part of a project funded through the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI). As the number of violent attacks against 2SLGBTQI+ citizens in Honduras remains high, this project aims to increase visibility of the risks facing these populations, specifically those of human-rights defenders in Honduras. The goal is to increase their legitimacy and safety in the lead-up to the Universal Periodic Review for Honduras.

You can learn more about the 2SLGBTQI+ human rights defenders whose voices are being amplified through this project by watching We are. Voices of Diversity.
