Obama Administration Quietly Implements Policies To Promote LGBT Rights Overseas

Associated Press: OBAMA LEGACY: A quiet mission to export gay rights overseas

The U.S. has deployed its diplomats and spent tens of millions of dollars to try to block anti-gay laws, punish countries that enacted them, and tie financial assistance to respect for LGBT rights. It was a mission animated in part by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s declaration that ‘gay rights are human rights’…” (Lederman, 10/26).
