"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights".

These words correspond to the wording of the first article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and is the unquestionable foundation that governs the work of the Spanish Local Corporations, legitimate entities and guarantors of the defense and protection of the rights and duties of all persons They live in our territories.

When 70 years have passed since the approval of the declarative document approved by the General Assembly of the United Nations, 65 years since the approval of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and 39, since its ratification by Spain, the FEMP Adhere, one more year, to the commemoration of the International LGBTI Pride Day as part of its commitment to equal treatment and opportunities as a fundamental principle and a priority task for local administrations.

On June 28, in memory of the Stonewall riots (New York), we celebrate the formal recognition of the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people based on universal and democratic values ​​such as equality, respect, diversity and freedom and, at the same time, we regret that this step has not occurred globally, nor fully.

We also regret that in many cases the recognition of their rights does not go beyond being a formal recognition, which unfortunately is sometimes not enough guarantee for these people that their rights are effectively respected.

We recognize the many measures that are being carried out from different areas to support the victims and to change attitudes and we stand in solidarity with all the people who have suffered from intolerance, discrimination and violence.

The local Spanish Corporations remain committed to the development and implementation of public policies and services ensuring an effective equality guarantee regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity, as an essential element for coexistence, progress and sustainable social and economic development .

We are, the local entities, the gateway and the first thermometer of the needs of citizenship and safeguarding of citizen coexistence and non-discrimination of all people, regardless of their race, sex, age, origin and sexual condition, we represent one of the three fundamental pillars on which the structure of our State rests and we contribute unequivocally to the welfare state.

City Councils, County Councils, Town Councils and Island Councils claim our role as essential agents in the design and development of transversal and strategic policies that guarantee equal treatment, dignity and rights.

For all these reasons, the Local Governments meeting in the FEMP:

- We invite all Local Entities to adhere to this Declaration and we join all the voices that cry for an equal future of all people regardless of their sexual identity and / or gender and their sexual orientation.

- We reaffirm our commitment to human rights and, consequently, to sexual diversity, as well as to the non-discrimination of people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity, recognizing the advances in this framework, while reiterating our firm determination to advance in overcoming the barriers that still survive today.

- We demand recognition of the high level of commitment assumed in the organization and provision of essential services and changes and innovations, new approaches and methodologies that we continue to incorporate to ensure the excellence, availability and quality that citizens demand and require.

- We see the need to invest in policies in favor of sexual diversity and the non-discrimination of people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity through the development of programs and projects for care, information, training, awareness and awareness, that make of our cities and towns safe spaces for sexual diversity in all its manifestations.

- We condemn any type of aggression, including both physical and verbal violence, humiliation and contempt towards LGTBI people in our country and we commit ourselves to continue working on the information and training of the Local Police.

- We affirm that equality policies are not possible without the City Councils.

For this reason, we claim the need to provide local authorities with the competencies in this area as well as sufficient means and resources to, in collaboration with the Government and the CCAA, ensure the proper implementation of all policies and initiatives necessary to ensure the effective equality of people in all our towns and cities.
