When the rights of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community are denied, "we all suffer".

That's according to Charles Radcliffe, of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), marking international Human Rights day on Thursday.

He was highlighting the financial and social cost of discriminating against LGBT people across the world.

To mark the occasion the UN's released a video called The Price of Exclusion, narrated by the Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto.

Mr Radcliffe spoke to Matthew Wells, about the message behind the video.
