The United Nations Pacific Free and Equal campaign to highlight sexual and gender diversity in the Pacific will be launched on Wednesday.
It is also aimed to promote respect for the rights of Pacific Islanders who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI).
The event at Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva will include the first screening of a new campaign video featuring the faces and voices of LGBTI people and their allies from across the Pacific.
The event will also highlight other campaign activities, including workshops for journalists, training on human rights monitoring, dissemination of fact sheets and other awareness raising efforts.
