“Yesterday’s news out of France is a reminder that momentum for LGBT equality is growing exponentially not just here in the United States, but across the globe. In the past few weeks, three countries – France, New Zealand, and Uruguay – have affirmed that all people deserve the same rights, dignity and protections. The milestone victories we’re achieving here at home and the progress we’re seeing abroad should serve not only as beacons of hope for the future, but also as a reminder of the work we have ahead of us to create a world where all people are treated fairly.”
The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
