U. S. Department of State to Offer Equal Benefits to Gay Diplomats

The U.S. State Department is preparing to provide equal benefits for gay and lesbian American diplomats, according to a leaked noticed to employees being prepared by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, The New York Times reported.

“Historically, domestic partners of Foreign Service members have not been provided the same training, benefits, allowances and protections that other family members receive,” the notice says. “These inequities are unfair and must end.”
