That's the first time ever?
I'm amazed that this is something new for the UN.
Doesn't the organisation support equal rights for everyone?
As for what lies ahead ... lots of oppression, couple of martyrs, and a long, slow process of change.
It'll be a while before we see the first Gay Pride March in Kabul, I reckon.
