U.S. to Sign UN Gay Rights Declaration

Great news coming from an Associated Press story courtesy of 365gay.com — the United Nations has a non-binding resolution on the table, already signed by more than 60 nations, calling for the decriminalization of homosexuality worldwide. After the Bush administration refused to sign on to the resolution in December, the Obama administration has decided to support it, bringing the U.S. in line with all other Western nations approached about signing the resolution.

This clearly signals an important shift for the global view on gay rights, and we find it heartening that the U.S. is joining a growing group of nations in publicly pledging its support.
