Why do I need to Take Act!on for full LGBT Equality?
LGBT Equality is not a given reality in any country on the globe. People are excluded or discriminated in societies all around the world, and if you are not directly involved by this exclusion, one of your friends will be. In at least 76 countries it is still illegal to be gay, in 5 countries being gay can be treated with the death penalty. If you believe in a Free & Equal world, you should step up for your community or friends in the community. We are all connected.
