Historical Moment for United Nations and LGBT Community

18 Jun

Thank you to my friends Joe and Tom for inspiring this story.  Yesterday, the United Nations finally endorsed protection of the LGBT community and went further to express:

“grave concern” about abuses because of sexual orientation and commissioning a global report on discrimination against gays.

And Kudos to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her response:

This represents a historic moment to highlight the human rights abuses and violations that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people face around the world based solely on who they are and whom they love.

I know many of us feel we keep taking steps backwards to full parity– with bigots like Morgan, Tyree, and Bachmann–but having the United Nations as an advocate is a historic step forward.  Click here to see the full story.
