“People Everywhere Deserve to Live in Freedom and Equality.”-Secretary of State John Kerry

People everywhere deserve to live in freedom and equality. No one should face violence or discrimination for who they are or who they love,” Secretary of State John Kerry, 1-15-14, MetroWeekly Poliglot

On this day, January 17th, 1945, the evacuation of Auschwitz Concentration Camp began.  You can imagine the horror I felt when I read that Nigerian police were rounding up gay men, persecuting them, arresting them, torturing them. It was all too familiar. Nigeria recently passed an anti-gay law that not only prohibits same sex marriage and LGBT organizations, but the simple getting together of a group of gay individuals.

The sad inquiry, “Oh When Will They (or We) Ever Learn? from Pete Seeger’s song, Where Have All the Flowers Gone laments through my heart.
