RESPONSE LETTER FROM THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY-GENERAL FOR HUMAN RESOURCES TO UN-GLOBE'S REQUEST TO JOIN THE LGBTI WORKING GROUP

Dear UN-GLOBE colleagues,

As you remember, a UN-GLOBE letter was sent to the USG of the Department of Management [letter requesting Mr. Takasu that UN-GLOBE be invited to join this Group] asking that UN-GLOBE be allowed to participate in the working group that has been established to discuss matters of concern to LGBTI staff, among them visa issues for same-sex spouses; and staff security in countries with anti-gay legislation or environments.

Please find the response from the ASG of Human Resources, which is encouraging.

I will keep you posted on the discussions of the group.

We’ll continue to fight to make sure our voices are heard.

Best,

Hyung Hak Nam (Alfonso)

President, UN-GLOBE
