We regularly raise the treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people with the Government of Belize. On 4 February 2015, our High Commissioner in Belmopan met with the Belizean Foreign Minister, the Honourable Wilfred Elrington, to discuss human rights and the treatment of homosexual men and women. The UK also raised LGBTI rights at Belize’s last Universal Periodic Review at the UN in 2013.
