To commemorate the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, and to support the Albanian civil society movement for human rights, non-discrimination and diversity, UNDP along with partners from government and intrenational community promoted today the “Garden of Diversity”.

The activity took place at the Tirana Artifical lake Park. The Garden of Diversity consists of a rainbow of flowers with a wooden bridge over the rainbow, echoing the symbolism of the LGBT movement.

Representatives of various institutions and civil society organizations symbolically planted flowers in the rainbow, to show their support for this cause.

The event aimed at raising awareness and generating support to the LGBT and other human rights movement and leave a mark in people’s minds encouraging the respect for diversity in Albanian society.
