Another year moves into history, a year that saw more progress for the gay community in so many nations, but one that left indelible images of suffering and repression from places as far flung as St. Petersburg, Cairo, Marrakesh, Jamaica and Pakistan.

There are still 76 countries where anti-gay legislation more penal than that in Russia is still in place with punishments that vary from fines to prison sentences, hard labour, forced psychiatric treatment, banishment, whipping and, amazingly, death by public stoning. While that seventy-six number remains unchanged, we will continue to call for progress while sharing the good news in the hope that it can play a part in penetrating the last citadels of persecution.
