Russia and equality.

Today’s Link

Another short one today folks, and sorry it is so late.  I’ve been out of town for the last two days working on school work and only just back…..  Today’s link tells us about some troubling things afoot in Russia.

Over the last few days the G8 members have been working on a statement that reaffirms equality and states that discrimination based on sexuality is a bad thing.  That’s pretty good to hear.  Except that it seems that the Russian Federation added a footnote to the whole thing saying that they didn’t agree.  The link will also tell you about what they said separately as well.  Not good.

It’s important for us to remember that there are many countries around the world where the fight for equality is much tougher than it is for many of us.  Remember these people in your thoughts and also that we still have much to do on a global basis to help reach equality for all, regardless of the sexuality or gender.

Big love,

DMx
