Hillary Clinton, again standing up for human rights...

What she did for women in Beijing, she's now doing for gay rights in Geneva. A number of people in the audience represented countries that are persecuting gays and lesbians.

One commenter on the Huffington Post noted, "What is particular­ly significan­t about this speech is that only one year ago this discussion was banned in the UN... A small minority of African delegates was manipulati­vely using their committee appointmen­ts to censor certain discussion­s and preventing the mention of LGBT rights. This is actually a world-chan­ging and groundbrea­king speech."

I love it when politicians stop talking politics and instead take stands for human rights.
