Calling on the Commonwealth to decriminalise homosexuality

Am pausing in my mass consumption of Josh Groban on Youtube (so funny! with such terrible hair!) to link to something actually important.

Being LGB(T) is illegal in over 80 countries and punishable by death in 10. The majority of those countries are Commonwealth nations: the British Empire, in one of its many epic fails, imported anti-homosexuality laws to its colonies and many of them have never been repealed.

This week is a chance: the Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Kamalesh Sharma, has made a speech calling for an end to these laws. On Friday the Commonwealth nations meet in Perth, Australia. The petition calls on the Secretary General and the Commonwealth heads of government to address this. You can sign it here.

We need as many people as possible to sign in the next 48 hours - especially those from the Commonwealth.

Hover your mouse over 'here' at the end of 'link is here'. I guess your style doesn't show link-text in a different colour?
