Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has recorded a message for LGBT Pride Month in a video released by the State Dept. Clinton notes the advances being made in the world toward LGBT rights but cautions there is still much left to do: This month, and every month, we proudly reaffirm our commitment to making sure that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. In the United States and around the world, progress is being made. The tireless advocacy of generations is bending the arc of history. Barriers are being torn down, discriminatory laws repealed, and millions are now able to live more freely and participate in the future of their communities and countries. But there is still much more to be done. Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender men and women continue to be persecuted and attacked. They are arrested, beaten, terrorized, and even executed.
