In Vienna on Monday, Ban Ki-moon met Conchita Wurst, the Austrian winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, to highlight the importance of mutual respect and tolerance, and to raise awareness about the rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community.

“Conchita is promoting respect for diversity. This is a core value of the UN Charter, along with our commitment to tolerance,” said the Secretary-General.
