Celina Jaitly Finally Has Backing From United Nation


Celina Jaitly Finally Has Backing From United Nation

29-1375092897-celina-jaitley-04Bollywood actress Celina Jaitly is stepping up with a campaign for the rights of Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT). Celina is a prominent voice for the rights of gays and lesbians in the country. She will support Free & Equal, the United Nation’s (UN) year-long campaign for equality and justice for people practising alternate sexuality. She hopes to create awareness about the problems faced by the LGBT community.

This campaign aims to raise awareness about homophobic and transphobic violence and discrimination, and encourage greater respect for the rights of LGBT people. A press release from the United Nations Human Rights names Celina along with pop star Ricky Martin, and Brazilian singer Daniela Mercury, who have taken the pledge to support the campaign.

Celina has been involved in various activities concerning human rights, women and children health, sex workers’ rehabilitation in India for more than a decade now. She is happy that she finally has the backing from UN. “I have spent half of my life fighting for the cause and finally with the backing of United Nations Human Rights and with the help of people I respect and love, I can take the campaign to another level. To get a platform like this to reach out to people across the world is a dream come true,” said the former beauty queen.

The actress feels that gay people should not be segregated at work places or in social spaces because of their sexual preference. She hopes to work towards that through the United Nations initiative. The 31-year-old Celina feels that there is a long way to go before the society comes anywhere close to realising equality for the LGBT community in India.”In India, there is only lip service for them. Equality is a basic human right and it cannot be denied to any community. There is a lot violence against the LGBT community across the world. At least in Mumbai they are relatively safer,” she said.
