Secretary Clinton giving her speech on LGBT rights at United Nations in Geneva
The US Secretary of State will receive the first ‘World LGBT Award’ at WorldPride London this summer. The award, which will be a joint presentation from The Kaleidoscope Trust and London Pride, is to honour Clinton for her public support for the LGBT community and the international attention she has brought to LGBT rights, through her speech at the United Nations in Geneva last December. This speech was a significant milestone in combating the criminalisation of homosexuality. The award will be presented at a gala evening during the World Pride event, which aims to raise awareness of those suffering persecution because of their sexuality.
World Pride is doing an amazing thing for the LGBT community, and we believe recognition for those supporting the cause is always welcomed.
