Join the Movement

The Secretary General's speech reminds us that in many places around the world LGBT people are still demonized, criminalized, attacked and even killed for who they are. Seventy-six countries still criminalize being gay, and 10 countries make being gay punishable by death or life imprisonment.

But as Ban Ki-moon says, a historic shift is underway. And together we can push that change further, faster.

Join the movement. Go All Out.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates and help us get the word out about our campaigns for love and equality.

It's not every day that a major world figure speaks out forcefully in defense of equality. But earlier this month, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon did just that when he made an incredibly powerful speech at the U.N. in Geneva. But most people didn't even hear about it.

Why? After the speech, the media focused on a handful of delegates who stormed out of meeting in protest. Their story - that gay people should be denied human rights - is the one that dominated the day's news. But with your help, we're going to change that.

Our friends at the U.N. let us REMIX Ban Ki-moon, so we took his speech and created this video. We hope you like it! After you watch, please share with your friends and family, helping this inspiring message reach the audience it deserves.

This is a campaign of the All Out Action Fund, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization.
