Hillary Clinton spoke at the United Nations offices in Geneva on Tuesday and announced the Global Equality Fund, backed by her and President Obama, which is a new global initiative to support gay rights.
The U.S. has committed $3 million to a fund that will work to support LGBT rights worldwide.
In her speech, she said:
"It is a violation of human rights when people are beaten or killed because of their sexual orientation, or because they do not conform to cultural norms about how men and women should look or behave.
It is a violation of human rights when governments declare it is illegal to be gay or allow those who harm gay people to go unpunished. It is a violation of human rights when life-saving care is withheld from people because they are gay, or public spaces are out of bounds to people because they are gay.
Being gay is not a Western invention. It is a human reality."
Yes! Yes! Yes! This is such a momentous occasion and is most definitely a day to remember. We can't even begin to tell you how proud we are of our country for finally taking such an important step forward in human rights and equality. Brings tears to our eyes.
