The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) adopted a resolution on alleged violations of the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people in the South Caucasus, which states that “the country's cultural and religious traditions should not be used to justify discrimination based on sexual orientation , gender identity, gender expression of sexual characteristics”.

The resolution expresses concern about the situation of LGBTI persons in Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia and focuses on the "multiple violations" of their rights.

PACE notes that demonstrations in support of LGBTI persons, "such as gay pride, do not constitute a violation or restriction of the rights of those who disagree with them."

“Each state that has put its signature to the European Convention on Human Rights is obliged to ensure the protection of fundamental rights and, among other things, to find the best way to prevent conflicts,” PACE said.

The Assembly called on all three countries of the South Caucasus to respect the right to hold public events in support of the rights of LGBTI persons, ensure their safety, protect participants from any violence and effectively investigate cases of violence.

The resolution also calls on the countries of the South Caucasus to ensure the freedom and independence of the media, as well as the safety of their employees, and to strengthen cooperation with non-governmental organizations working on LGBTI issues.

The Assembly recommends that states promote public education in the field of human rights and, in particular, provide specific training for members of the judiciary and law enforcement on hate speech and hate crimes against LGBTI individuals.
