Use this lesson to explain the human rights debate around LGBT rights and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Students will analyze the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and determine whether or not LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people are protected under the provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Finally, students will evaluate and argue the merits of extending or not extending provisions of the UDHR for the LGBT community. This is part 1 of a 2 part lesson.
