France plans to appoint an ambassador for representatives

French Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne has announced that she will appoint an ambassador for LGBTI people at the end of the year to protect their rights.

The French Prime Minister confirmed during an event in Orléans yesterday, Thursday, on the occasion of the celebration of the fortieth anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality in France, that this new position will be coordinated with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Bourne noted that the ambassador’s work will include combating discrimination against this community, promoting its rights, and advocating for the global decriminalization of homosexuality and transgender people.

The French Prime Minister said that “they are being called into question even in the European legal system.” The new position is justified by LGBT rights, with a veiled reference to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

It should be noted that on August 4, 1982, the French abolished the provisions relating to same-sex relationships from the Criminal Code.

On the same day, the first gay parade in the history of the country took place.
