America’s openly gay ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, will lead the effort to repeal gay sex bans in every country where they still exist, and there are nearly 70 of them. The US embassy in Germany has reportedly flown in LGBT+ campaigners from across Europe for a meeting on February 19th demanding to raise the issue in African and Middle Eastern region, which is more likely to criminalize homosexuality because of conservative cultures and out-of-dated Colonial Era laws. An American official who was involved in organizing the event said: “It is concerning that, in the 21st century, some 70 countries continue to have laws that criminalize LGBTI status or conduct.” The campaign is reportedly likely to request assistance from the European Union, United Nations and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. The US does not intend to address issues such as marriage equality, same-sex adoption and anti-LGBT discrimination laws before homosexuality is decriminalized, and even if it happens it will not mean all the basic human rights to be given to the LGBT population.
