Queen Elizabeth Signs On The Dotted Line In Favor Of Gay Rights
Queen Elizabeth II is sticking up for queens everywhere by signing on the the Commonwealth Charter, a document designed to “stamp out discrimination against homosexual people and promote the ’empowerment’ of women.'”
The document applies not just to the United Kingdom, but to the entire Commonwealth of Nations, which includes Australia, India, parts of Africa and many other countries.
Considering that homosexual acts are currently a capital offense in several parts of the Commonwealth, this treaty could be a historic step forward for gay rights.
