Georgia: Protect Rights of LGBTI People (UA 61/16)

The bill which would amend the Constitution introducing a definition of marriage as a union exclusively between a man and a woman, received the endorsement of the Parliament’s Human Rights and Civil Integration Committee on 5 May. Now the bill has to go through other committee hearings after which it will be voted by the parliament.
1) Please write immediately in Georgian, English or your own language:
  • Calling on the Georgian authorities to stop the bill aimed at restricting the constitutional definition of marriage as this would effectively discriminate against same-sex partners;
  • Urging the Georgian authorities to respect, protect and fulfil the rights of all people in Georgia regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.
