The fight against all forms of discrimination, and the call for "Tourism for All" by Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Candidate for Secretary General of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) was seen as inspiring by the Seychellois, the Region, for mainland Africa and for the World said Ronny Arnephy, the Vice Chairman of the LGBTI Seychelles.
In a letter of endorsement sent to Mr St.Ange by the LGBTI Seychelles, Mr Ronny Arnephy says:- "Your message ("Tourism for All" and the fight against all forms of discrimination) should resonate with the world because it is the correct message not only for us the LGBTI community, but also other communities such as people with disability, young people, women who find themselves marginalised for a reason or another" said Mr Ronny Arnephy before adding that the LGBTI Seychelles will be calling on their affiliated bodies to seek support for the Seychelles bid.
The LGBTI Seychelles is the only registered LGBTI organisation of the Seychelles and they are looking forward to receiving support for the Seychelles bid for SG of the UNWTO from African LGBTI Organisations and also from those from many UNWTO Voting Member States.
Alain St.Ange said he was delighted to see more local organisation stand behind the Seychelles bid. "Patriotism is not in the heart of everyone, I am so happy to see the LGBTI Seychelles join the long list of committed Seychellois show proudly they are behind Seychelles and all that is Seychellois" said St.Ange, the islands candidate for SG of the UNWTO.
