France said on Monday that it would set up a fund through its embassies to promote the rights of LGBTQ people, as it met like-minded nations at the United Nations. Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna made the announcement at the 15th anniversary of an LGBTQ group at the United Nations at the start of the annual General Assembly. The fund of €2 million will be used “for our embassies to support those who are defending LGBTQ rights on a daily basis around the world, sometimes at risk to their lives,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Anne-Claire Legendre said.
