More than 130 LGBTQ rights groups have signed a letter to support the protection of vulnerable population Afghans in Afghanistan. Especially LGBGTQ+ people, women, and children. Taliban fighters entered the Afghan capital on August 15th resulting in a mass exodus of foreign government officials. The Afghan president also fled the country. Since the Taliban has taken over the capital, LGBTQ+ rights groups have grown troubled due to the group’s extremist views and history. The organizations call for the Taliban to adhere to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and overall international human rights norms. The signed parties also call upon the Taliban to work with vulnerable people through what ever negotiations between them and the Afghan government.
