      If you are referring to “rights” in general, I agree…but if you are referring to full civil rights protections for the GLBT community…well, the equation comes out a little differently.

      —- Canada, definitely…Europe, selectively…America, sparsely.

      But, at least they don’t execute us anymore here in the USA, or make it a twenty year prison sentence like what was legal in the state of Georgia just a few years ago before the Lawrence v. Texas Supreme Court decision striking down anti-gay sex laws throughout the USA. I suppose that’s some progress. That and we can marry in a few states even though the federal government doesn’t recognize those marriages as legal. But we’re heading in the right direction.
