UN Hears From LGBT Arabs


The U.N. Security Council discussed homosexual and transgender issues for the first time ever in an informal meeting Monday. The United States and Chile co-sponsored the session, which focused on how LGBT persons in the Middle East are increasingly the target of self-styled Islamic State fighters. U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said that while meeting’s emphasis was on ISIL, this problem is not just limited to the terror group.
