Statement by Ambassador Ertharin Cousin on the occasion of EuroPride Roma 2011

I and all the members of the USUN Rome Mission team proudly take this opportunity to honor all our United States Government LGBT colleagues.  As President Barack Obama reminded us at the beginning of June, this is an occasion to “rededicate ourselves to the pursuit of equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.”  Our Rome team looks forward to participating in EuroPride Roma 2011 on Saturday June 11, 2011.
