We just love you guys!
The Supreme Court of Britain ruled today that homosexuals living in parts of the world which aren't so open-minded can find refuge in their country.
Sadly, there are still many places in the world where homosexuals face constant fear of persecution for their orientation. Now, if they like, they can call Britain their home and will be granted asylum.
Deputy President of the Supreme Court, Lord Hope of Craighead, summed it up perfectly, saying:
“To compel a homosexual person to pretend that his sexuality does not exist or to suppress the behaviour by which it manifests itself is to deny him his fundamental right to be who he is. Homosexuals are as much entitled to freedom of association with others who are of the same sexual orientation as people who are straight.”
Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!
We're so proud of this! A beautiful and important step for equality!
