Statement by Ambassador Susan E. Rice, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, on International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia, May 17, 2012

On International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia, we celebrate human diversity and rededicate ourselves to a basic but essential truth—that human rights are universal and must be protected. To our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender friends and relatives around the world: the United States stands with you in your struggle against discrimination. We will continue to do everything we can, in every arena possible, to promote communities and societies in which all people can live safely and love without fear.
