At a conference hosted by Human Rights Campaign (HRC) this week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate address in support of LGBT rights:
“I’ve had it up to here with culture. I really mean it. Culture never justifies rank, raw, discrimination or violation of human rights. There is no cultural justification. None. None. None.”
“LGBT people face violence, harassment, unequal treatment, mistreatment by cops, denial of health care, isolation—always in the name of culture.”
