The U.S. Ambassador to Costa Rica, S. Fitzgerald Haney, expects Costa Rica to see  it a demonstration of the U.S. committment to tolerance, acceptance of equal rights for all citizens, regardless of their sexual orientation and be a symbol of support for human rights.

“This has been a keyyear for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) in the United States with the historic decision of the U.S. Supreme Court which states that same-sex couples have the right to marry and enjoy equal benefits year under U.S. law,” said Haney during a ceremony Wednesday morning.

On Tuesday (June 1, 2016), US President Barack Obama proclaimed June as LGBT Pride Month in the United States. According to the Presidential proclamation, LGBT individuals deserve to know their country stands beside them.

“The fight for dignity and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people is reflected in the tireless dedication of advocates and allies who strive to forge a more inclusive society,” President Obama wrote.
