The Top Ten LGBT News Stories Of 2011 Revealed!

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivers a rousing gay-rights address to the UN
December 6, 2011

We just watched Clinton’s speech to the UN for the sixth time and damn if we didn’t get choked up again! It was the first time a cabinet member has addressed LGBT issues before an international body, and she spoke with the perfect blend of righteousness, humility and urgency. “Like being a woman, like being a racial, religious, tribal or ethnic minority, being LGBT does not make you less human. And that is why gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.” Hillary in 2016!
