In accordance with the participation of the President of the Republic and the Prime Minister on August 4, 2022, Mr. Jean-Marc Berton is the nominal ambassador for the rights of LGBT+ persons on the proposal of Ms. Catherine Colon, Minister de l’Europe et des Affaires étrangères.

While homosexuality and transidentity are still penalized by many states and the rights of LGBT+ people have been remitted to the cause throughout the world, the ambassador will have the mission of bringing voice and action to France in the matière, with the support of the ensemble of the French diplomatic network.

Il réitèrera l’engagement de la France en faveur de la dépenalisation universelle de l’homosexualité et de la défense des droits des personnes LGBT+, et apportera tout son soutien aux organizations de la société civile qui œuvrent souvent dans des conditions difficiles.
