Report on Human Rights in Peru

As every year the UNAIDS Office for Peru and Bolivia jointly with other organizations proudly supports the Report on Human Rights of transgender people , lesbians, gays and bisexuals in Peru.  The 2012 annual report, developed by the Center for the Promotion and Defence of Sexual and Reproductive Rights (PROMSEX) and the Peruvian LGTB Network (La Red Peruana TLGB), was published in the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, 17th of April 2013.

The report presents an analysis of the situation of the rights of LGBT people in Peru taking as reference the Yogyakarta Principles and in particular those related to the rights to equality and non-discrimination, gender identity and life and personal safety.

The Report highlights that during 2012 and part of 2013, there were several recommendations from the United Nations Human Rights bodies that expressed concern of the situation of violence and discrimination against transgender people , lesbians, gays and bisexuals in Peru. At the national level Peru lacks a regulatory framework and public policies that effectively protects them, and specifically recognizes them as subject to rights. Some progress has however been documented including approval of various municipal bylaws that prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation.

The annual report is an effective advocacy tool to raise awareness about daily situation faced by LGTB persons in Peru and encourage actions that protect the human rights of the LGTB persons. A similar study will be undertaken in Bolivia later this year.
