Belgium: BePax holds an event on the rights of the LGBTQ community and the "genealogy of an insult"


6/10/18 - Earlier this week on 3 October, BePax held an event on the rights of the LGBTQ community and how certain terms have become an insult to various sectors of society. The description for the event stated:

"In recent years, the texts of the European Convention on Human Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights no longer seem to be the subject of the consensus they had enjoyed for several decades. The term "right-of-the-man" seems to have even become an insult to certain sectors of society - not just the fachosphere."

BePas's Edgar Szoc will try to explain the mechanisms underlying this movement and to put forward some ideas that could stop it so that, before fighting against racism or defending freedom of expression, someone does not feel obliged to specify: "I am not right-of-the-house but ..."

Also speaking was Céline Romainville, Professor of Public Law at UCL and Vice-President of the League of Human Rights. The event included a debate with the public.
