One small step

More news from the BBC of one small step in the process that is adequate rights for gays across the world. This story comes out of Uganda where homosexuality is still illegal. The two women were awarded $5,000 from a judge for undergoing what she said was “arbitrary torture.” They were both arrested and then one was undressed so that they police could prove she was a woman.

It makes me take heart to hear of stories like this. No matter how small of steps they are the fact is that they are steps in the right direction and maybe one day soon more countries will recognize gays and lesbians as full and equal. Here’s hoping.
