A group of foreign ministers — including U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and officials from nine other nations — came together to discuss LGBT rights during last week’s United Nations General Assembly. This was the first meeting of its kind, signaling that LGBT rights have become a central topic of the global human rights debate.
The office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, which launched a global LGBT rights campaign earlier this year, released a video Monday of highlights of that that meeting:
- Rallies for climate change action are taking place around the world ahead of the United Nations climate talks in Paris. ›
- Planned Parenthood officials said they believed Friday's shooting at a Colorado Springs clinic was motivated by opposition to abortion. ›
- And watch a man react to the modern world after spending 44 years in prison. ›
