The turn to human rights as an international mechanism for the protection of people from violence and discrimination based on sexuality and gender identity is very recent, particularly with respect to its formal institutionalisation. The thickening and spread of legal and institutional mechanisms - at the United Nations, and in various regions - is conventionally depicted as part of the progressive unfolding of a rights triumph over time.1 The extension of human rights protection to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ)2 people is celebrated as an overdue culmination of the global human rights project.
