International Day Against Homophobia

This year's theme is: homosexuality knows no borders.
Held on May 17 each year, the International Day Against Homophobia is the moment to remember that homosexuality is a universal fact and cannot be restricted by borders.
There are gay men and lesbians in all countries. What actually differs from country to country is how these people are treated.
Not all of the world’s citizens are able to enjoy the privilege of living in an egalitarian society. In many countries, loving a member of the same sex and having sexual relations with that person are against the law.

NH is poised to legally sanction marriage for our gay brothers and sisters. This isn't possible in so many other countries around the world. We can help stop homophobia around the globe by setting a good example here.

Amen to that, thanks for posting this Susan. I already can envision the vile and disgusting comments that will appear in the Sun in response to the Teletalk question. Naturally, they will eminate from those individuals who are the only one's that God has blessed with life in the hereafter. This God is intolerant, discriminatory, and loves war mongering. Don't think I know that one.
