This is being called, "The Speech You've Been Waiting for."

"Now, we must go further and work here and in every region of the world to galvanize more support for the human rights of the LGBT community. To the leaders of those countries where people are jailed, beaten, or executed for being gay, I ask you to consider this: Leadership, by definition, means being out in front of your people when it is called for. It means standing up for the dignity of all your citizens and persuading your people to do the same. It also means ensuring that all citizens are treated as equals under your laws, because let me be clear I am not saying that gay people cant or dont commit crimes. They can and they do, just like straight people. And when they do, they should be held accountable, but it should never be a crime to be gay."

I just fell in love with Hillary....

2. Wow
So, no more international pandering to theocratic bigot and fascist regimes?

I'm impressed. Honestly.
