We support the IDAHOBIT 2024 theme, ‘No one left behind: equality, freedom and justice for all.’

We are united in our support of diversity and our shared commitment to ensuring that those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer can enjoy the same freedoms as everyone else.

We celebrate and support inclusive societies that respect the dignity and human rights of LGBTIQ+ persons and endeavor to ensure all individuals in society are treated equally in all spheres.

We thank the organisers of Vienna Pride 2024 and welcome Vienna’s decision to host the EuroGames 2024. We invite you to support our goals, and to follow our social media coverage on Instagram, Facebook, X (formerly known as Twitter), and other channels via #DiplomatsForEquality.
