Global Proportions…

Former US Ambassador Michael Guest’s not done shaking things up for the State Department. Guest, who resigned from his post in Romania to protest the Department’s gay inequality, has now joined forces with Council for Global Equality to coordinate international efforts against homophobia. Explains Guest, “Its purpose is to make the United States government and the State Department stand up for global LGBT human rights.” [BAR]

      Fair enough, but it’s not just Muslim countries that are violently homophobic. Eastern Europe is pretty good at that, too!
