U.S. Vows to Promote Gay Rights Abroad

This year, the Obama administration directed all federal agencies engaged abroad to ensure that U.S. diplomacy and foreign assistance promote and protect the human rights of LGBT persons.

“The struggle to end discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons is a global challenge, and one that is central to the United States’s commitment to promoting human rights,” the president said.
