Follow-up on the United Nations 5th CESCR Periodic Report (Mauritius)

La communauté LGBT se fait accepter petit à petit par les Mauriciens. Mais, il leur reste un palier à franchir : celui de faire ouvertement leur coming-out au sein des entreprises dans lesquelles ils exercent, tout comme aux États-Unis, en Australie, au Canada, en Grande-Bretagne, en France et en Inde.
