"There are three great swathes of humanity still untouched by the spirit of Stonewall -- and terrified, terrorized gay people there are screaming for help. In the Caribbean, majority-Muslim countries, and most of Africa, being gay is a death sentence -- yet many people who should be showing solidarity choose not to see it."

--Johann Hari, columnist for the London Independent, at HuffPo
