Violence and abuse against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people (LGBTI) has to stop, including in the workplace, UN staff said on Wednesday.

UN-GLOBE, the group representing the organization's LGBTI workers, made the appeal on the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT).

The day is held on 17 May to commemorate the World Health Organization's (WHO) decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.

UN-GLOBE's call has the support of UN Geneva Director-General Michael Møller, as the organization's Gurchaten Sandhu explained to Daniel Johnson.
