The What, When and Who of 2013

The Year in Review

DECEMBER

Still in the midst of December, it’s difficult to assess beyond another World AIDS Day, India’s Supreme Court re-criminalizing homosexual conduct and the death of an icon of social justice, Nelson Mandela.

In the words of Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin: “Nelson Mandela tore down oppression, united a rainbow nation, and always walked arm-in-arm with his LGBT brothers and sisters – and with all people – toward freedom. Though every man, woman and child who seeks justice around the world mourns this loss, his vision of an equal future lives on undimmed.”
