U.S. Signs U.N. Declaration Decriminalizing Homosexuality

In entirely shocking yet not altogether surprising news, the U.S. has finally signed a U.N. declaration that decriminalizes homosexuality.

It seems that the Bush Administration never wanted to join about 60 other U.N. states in signing the document.

According to Reuters:

“The administration’s leadership on this issue will be a powerful rebuke of an earlier Bush administration position that sought to deny the universal application of human rights protections to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals,” said Mark Bromley, who chairs the Council for Global Equality.
