U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton delivers a video message for Pride Month highlighting areas of progress but pointing out how much still needs to be done. Clinton says: 'In the United States and around the world, progress is being made. The tireless advocacy of generations is bending the arc of history. Barriers are being torn down, discriminatory laws repealed, and millions are now able to live more freely and participate in the future of their communities and countries.'
Clinton, a former First Lady and US Senator, made history late last year when she addressed the United Nations and called on nations around the world to recognize that 'gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights.'
