Honduras must respect and protect the human rights of the LGBTI community, experts said Tuesday at an event sponsored by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (Aecid) and the European Union (EU). The former Spanish trans deputy and activist of that group Carla Antonelli stated that Honduras must legislate in favor of vulnerable groups, such as the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and intersexual (LGBTI) community. "Pedagogy is fundamental, the commitment of governments, but also in legislative matters (it is necessary) to have laws aimed at protecting vulnerable groups, in this case the LGBTI," he stressed. Honduras must promote regulations aimed at guaranteeing the LGBTI community "their fundamental rights, such as the recognition of their own identity and prevent discrimination," said the Spanish activist. Antonelli also stressed the importance of making the problems faced by this group visible, in order to "move forward in this society", and affirmed that Spain is an example of this.
