The world is at an inflection point for LBGTQ rights, as a mixture of opportunities and crises converge, according to an assessment from one of the world’s few special envoys on queer rights. While notable progress has been made for human rights worldwide, only four countries have a diplomat specifically assigned to handle LGBTQ issues. Three of them marched together for the first time at the New York Pride parade this past Sunday: U.S special envoy Jessica Stern; Italy’s special envoy for human rights, Fabrizio Petri; and Argentina’s Alba Rueda.
