Desmond Tutu calls on world leaders to protect LGBTQI rightsBY STEVE WILLIAMS

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, alongside three other Nobel Laureates, has called upon world governments, in particular Russian and Ugandan lawmakers, to safeguard the rights of LGBTI citizens.

Says the statement:

“Collectively we represent a diverse array of countries and cultures. Today more than ever, we wish to express that the same cultural values, which have fostered and supported our lifelong quests for peace, also command us to speak out against the violence and discrimination our fellow human beings are enduring every day solely because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex.
