LGBTQ News Compilation-October 13

US opposes UN ban on death penalty for gay people, others

New York, NY - As reported in Out.com, on October 6, the United Nations voted to pass a resolution banning a death penalty for the crime of being homosexual, and to our immense relief, the motion passed with a vote of 27 to 13. What isn't so relieving, however, is that the United States was one of the nations to vote against the measure. The United States was joined in its no vote by Bangladesh, Botswana, Burundi, China, Japan, Qatar, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, which currently maintains a death penalty for the crime of sodomy. Belgium, Benin, Costa Rica, France, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia, and Switzerland brought the ban forward, each of these countries having made LGBTQ rights a high priority in their legal initiatives.
