Queen Elizabeth will sign a document supporting gay rights and gender equality Sunday in a live television broadcast, according to the Daily Mail.
Called the Commonwealth Charter, the document says, “We are implacably opposed to all forms of discrimination, whether rooted in gender, race, colour, creed, political belief or other grounds.” The charter is the first time in her 61-year reign the Queen has indicated her support for gay rights.
