Congratulations! This is one brave man!
Isn't it time that we all speak up and stop this stupid discrimination right now.
When will we educate people in the world?
Why is it so easy to judge and hate rather than love and accept?

Being an older lesbian it gives me hope when I witness something said or done on behalf of LGBT people that I thought I would not see in my lifetime.
Thank you for this Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon.
