We welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down a law that denied freedom and equality for LGBT Americans. The implications of this landmark decision are going to unfold over the coming months as the decision opened the way to eliminate rules and regulations that adversely affected the rights of many Americans. Secretary Kerry praised President Obama’s leadership. He added: "From Stonewall to the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ despite setbacks along the way, the arc of our history on this issue has bent towards inclusion and equality, perhaps never more so than today." I share Secretary Kerry’s pride of the progress we have made.
