I am really proud and excited that a leader in the world is actually saying these things. It gives power and strength to those of us who are actively striving for gay equality.

The only thing i don't agree with is the 'criminalization' of homophobia - I don't think it's right if someone discriminates against those who are gay, bi, trans or intersexed, but laws should be made to protect against this - but you can't criminalize a thought.
