Written Contribution on the position of LGBTI children and children of LGBTI parents in Bosnia and Herzegovina to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child

Report

Public opinion polls have shown that LGBTI persons, along with Roma persons, are the least accepted minority group in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The vast majority of the citizens of BiH continue to see homosexuality as a disease and support criminal prosecution and punishment of LGBTI persons. The vast majority of families would not accept an LGBTI family member and would reject and exclude them solely by reason of their different identity and personal characteristics.

ERA, in close partnership with its members from Bosnia and Herzegovina: CURE Foundation and Tuzla Open Centre, submitted this Written Contribution on the position of LGBTI children and children of LGBTI parents in Bosnia and Herzegovina to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC), as Bosnia and Herzegovina will be reviewed by the UN CRC during 2019.
