Global Campaign to Decriminalize Homosexuality

International Day Against Homophobia (or IDAHO. Yes, go ahead and giggle.) Announced yesterday the launch of a global petition to the United Nations in favor of a resolution to universally decriminalize homosexuality. From the press release:
“With more than 70 countries in the world still making homosexuality a crime by law — and punishable by death in twelve of them — this is a legal scandal which the petition for a proposed U.N. resolution decriminalizing homosexuality gives people a concrete way to fight,” Tin [president of the International Committee for IDAHO] said.
