This is only to let you know that since August,2nd. I have been appointed as Special Advisor on Sexual Diversity rights at the National Ombudsperson Office, in Venezuela. Formerly I was General Coordinator of Union Afirmativa(Affirmative Union), ngo devoted to promote compliance to international standards on lgbt human rights and the only one so far which has a response by the Venezuelan State on lgbt human rights in this country (it´s a ruling by the Supreme Court which states constitutional ban on sexual orientation discrimination).
