El Salvador promotes human rights for LGBTI community

Pescozada / OHCHR Central Ameria

The rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community in El Salvador are being highlighted as a result of a campaign supported by the UN Human Rights Office (OHCHR).

The Libres e Iguales (Free and Equal) campaign was created in response to a reported increase in hate crimes.

It's hoped it will help end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Stephanie Castro begins her report with a clip from a video produced to support the campaign, where a woman asks "what would you do if your child was LGBTI?"
