IDAHOT 2015 was marked with high level statements, important reports on intersex issues and pride events all over Europe.
On 11 October 2013, the Moldovan Parliament abolished a law banning ‘homosexual propaganda’.
On 23 May 2013, the Parliament of Moldova introduced a new article “Public activities with negative impact on minors” in the Code of Administrative Offences.
Laws banning ‘propaganda of homosexuality’ are incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights and should be repealed, says European Commission for Democracy through Law (Venice Commission)
Joint media release by International Commission of Jurists and ILGA-Europe
The Moldovan Parliament adopted earlier today a Law on Ensuring Equality. While the adoption of an anti-discrimination legislation is a positive measure, ILGA-Europe is concerned that the ground of sexual orientation is not explicitly mentioned in the list of grounds of discrimination covered by the law, except in relation to discrimination in the workplace.
ILGA-Europe finds today’s adoption of the decision “On proclamation of the city of Balti zone of support for Moldovan Orthodox Church and inadmissibility of aggressive propaganda of non-traditional sexual orientations” by the City Council of Balti shameful and retrograde.
Currently the Moldovan Parliament is debating an anti-discrimination law which in its current form provides protection against discrimination on various grounds, including sexual orientation. The draft law was approved by the Moldovan government and is now in the hands of parliamentarians.
