We still have a long LONG way to go in the fight for equality for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) folks around the world.
Broke my heart reading this story about two Iranian teens hanged this week because they are gay. It's a crime in Iran.
If some folks in the U.S. had their way, being gay would bring the same type of consequence in the eyes of the law. Sad.
As "good" as we may have it in the U.S. (well, some parts of the U.S., maybe?!?!), there's still a long LONG way to go in the U.S. and abroad. Just because there are primitive laws in many places around the world, does not take the U.S. off the hook. Not by a long shot. And imagine if church and state were even more intermingled in the U.S...
