South Africa Instead Wanted The UN Human Rights Council To ‘Study’ Sexual Orientation

Rather than join with the United States and some 84 other countries in support of a non-binding statement (“Ending Acts of Violence and Related Human Rights Violations Based On Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity”) that seeks to end anti-LGBT violence and criminalization, South Africa — which protects sexual orientation at the constitutional level — instead proposed a resolution that would study “new concepts such as sexual orientation.” Well, that’s what South Africa’s Human Rights Council ambassador Jerry Matjila did at first, anyhow; he later agreed to the statement.
