The British High Commission and Multiple Action Research Group (MARG) have partnered to celebrate the recent Delhi Pride march, by co-hosting an event recognising MARG’s work, and that of LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual) activists around the world.

“Breaking Stereotypes” brought together people from all walks of life, a diverse group of men, women and transgender persons from different professional, educational and cultural backgrounds. The event highlighted the experiences and talents of the LGBTQIA people to a wider audience, raising awareness of the issues faced by the community.

With the support of the British High Commission, MARG supports LGBTQIA people in India to achieve full enjoyment of their human rights.

Addressing the audience Ms Hannah Cockburn, First Secretary, Bilateral Affairs, British High Commission said:

‘I have been inspired by the people I have met today and feel proud that we are collaborating and engaging with them on such an important area. The British government is committed to building an inclusive society for everyone – no matter their gender or sexuality – and to engaging on the interests of the LGBTQIA community globally. I am really pleased that we have been able to do that today with a creative, exciting and vibrant event that bought together people from across the LGBTQIA community. ‘
