Update: 5:37PM EVERYBODY is human whether they be gay, lesbians, bisexuals or transsexuals, says Roshika Deo, leader of Be The Change campaign.

Speaking during an interview at a recent campaign in Taveuni Ms Deo said all humans needed to be treated with respect and dignity.

"We are all humans and humanity prevails over everything else," she said.

"I think that all single person and citizens in Fiji deserve to be treated with respect and dignity irrespective of their sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, status or class."
