US embassy raised the LGBTI+ flag

Today, on the occasion of the International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia, Transphobia and Interphobia on May 17, the US Embassy in Azerbaijan raised the LGBTI+ flag.

The embassy said on its Facebook page:

“May 17 is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOTB).  The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone is entitled to human rights and fundamental freedoms. In celebrating the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex persons worldwide, the United States re-affirms this shared value: Everyone deserves to live in dignity.”
