Clinton, Obama: Stop Gay Discrimination

The Obama admimistration has just declared that it plans to plans to use foreign assistance, international diplomacy and political asylum to promote gay rights abroad.


Both the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a speech before the U.N. Human Rights Council and President Barack Obama, in a memorandum to Executive departments issued a coordinated denunciation Tuesday of gay discrimination, stating that “equal treatment of gay, lesbian and transgender people is an explicit U.S. Foreign policy goal


This is the U.S. government’s first comprehensive strategy to combat sexual orientation-based human rights abuses around the world.” the administration added cheered by Gay Rights associations. Wayne Besen, founder of Truth Wins Out, a group that monitors religious organizations with anti-gay views, listed Russia, Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda, Iran and Zimbabwe among the nations that had recently “declared war on sexual minorities” and said that he hoped they would be chastened by the administration’s blunt talk.

This was one of those times where our nation demonstrated true international leadership and made me incredibly proud to be an American,” Besen said. “There were no carefully crafted and focus grouped code words that sugarcoated the abuses — just the honest truth spoken from the heart.
Jessica Stern, acting director of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission in New York, said the administration was wise not to tie gay rights to the provision or withdrawal of foreign aid because doing so could set lesbian and gay people up as scapegoats. Instead, the U.S. could assist gay rights groups with necessities like rent, salaries or an escape route from persecution, Stern said.
If a grass-roots organization doesn’t have access to government ministers, maybe what they have is the police showing up at their doorstep every day,” she said. “That’s when they need the U.S. government to communicate with their allies in a foreign country, but the question is how to do it right, how can you do it discreetly?

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
