This week, President Obama announced a series of steps to advance the human rights of LGBT persons around the world. The President's directive strengthens our voice on behalf of LGBT rights across the globe, and takes the bold steps of tying our foreign assistance decisions to a country's record on LGBT issues and providing equal access to assistance and aid to LGBT refugees and asylum seekers. In acting to promote and preserve the safety and freedom of LGBT communities worldwide, President Obama reaffirmed a basic promise: no matter whom you love and where you live, the United States will stand strong for your fundamental human rights.
