A female diplomat requests residency for her partner, Lebanese officials give no answer!


Al Akhbar daily wrote today that, at a time when a number of countries, including The Vatican, have taken progressive steps on LGBT rights, Lebanon is still far away from this issue. The newspaper, citing informed sources, reported that the Ambassador of Canada to Lebanon, Emmanuelle Lamoureux, asked the foreign ministry to grant her female life partner a residency permit that is usually granted for the wives of diplomats. The foreign ministry, nonetheless, has not taken any decision, Al Akhbar mentioned, since this is the first time it faces such a request. (Al Akhbar, August 8, 2018)
