As the year winds down, we take a look at some of the victories and defeats for the LGBT community and our supporters in 2010. This was a year of celebrity coming outs, marriages and a one very gay TV show. It was also a year of political set-backs and violence against our community. It was a year where LGBT teens suffered and lesbians and gay men in Africa quiver and quake at intensity of violence directed at them. It is also a year in which the community and our allies, including the President of the United States and the Secretary of State put out a very clear and strong message for LGBT teens at risk.
