The video explains how society is depriving it’s own economy of resources by denying rights to LGBTIQ individuals in the workplace and every day life.

Head of Global Issues at the UN’s Human Rights Office Charles Radcliffe says that every LGBTIQ worker denied work or driven to emigrate is a lost opportunity to build a more productive economy.

“In study after study, rates of poverty, homelessness, depression and suicide are found to be far higher in the LGBT community than among the general population.

“It’s not only LGBT people who pay the price; we all do. Every trans kid thrown out of home or forced out of school is a loss for society.”
