US Secretary of State Clinton condemns violence based on sexual orientation

During a Gala Dinner Secretary of State Mrs. H. Clinton says:

“But we also must condemn violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity. In country after country after country, young men and women are persecuted, are singled out, even murdered in
cold blood, because of who they love or just based on claims that they are gay. We are starting to track violence against the LGBT community, because where it happens anywhere in the world, the United States must
speak out against it and work for its end.”
