How did representatives from nations with less-than-stellar track records on gay rights respond?
The AP reports:
Clinton’s audience in Geneva included diplomats from Arab, African and other nations where homosexuality is criminalized or where brutality and discrimination against gay and transgender people is tolerated or encouraged. Many of the ambassadors in the audience responded with stony faces and rushed out of the room as soon as she finished speaking.
What’s so bad about these countries? Rick Perry says America doesn’t do more than just tolerate gays, so they’re not so far from us.
