Flying the Pride Flag
May 18, 2020

We are flying the Pride Flag in recognition of International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOTB)

All persons are born with the same inalienable rights and we condemn any threats to those rights on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Nearly 70 countries still criminalize LGBTI status and activity. The United States continues to support global decriminalization.

As the world addresses the COVID-19 crisis, we condemn discrimination against LGBTI persons and members of other vulnerable communities who may be denied basic health services simply because of who they are.

HumanRights are universal.
