On 6 December 2011, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, marked International Human Rights Day with an amazing and inspiring speech in Geneva. In her speech she spoke about how ‘Gay Rights were Human Rights, and Human Rights were Gay Rights’.
Her speech speaks to the heart of the OutTales ‘My Sexuality is a Human Right‘ ongoing campaign; an awareness raising campaign in response to the same-sex prohibition bill currently making its way through parliament in Nigeria.
As Hillary says in her rousing speech, ‘being gay is not a western invention, it is a human reality’. Wake-up Nigeria!
