A remix of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's video in support of gay rights was released Wednesday on YouTube.

The two-minute-thirty-second video begins with video footage showing most representatives from Arab and African nations walking out earlier this month on an historic session on gay rights at the United Nations Humans Rights Council in Geneva.

The panel was set to discuss High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay's report documenting discriminatory laws and acts of violence against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

In her opening remarks, Pillay urged countries to dedicate themselves to ending violence and discrimination against people, irrespective of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

In a video played to the panel, Ban tells LGBT viewers that they “are not alone.”

“Your struggle for an end to violence and discrimination is a shared struggle. Any attack on you is an attack on the universal values the United Nations and I have sworn to uphold. Today, I stand with you and I call upon all countries and people to stand with you, too. A historic shift is underway. More states see the gravity of the problem. … We must tackle the violence, decriminalize consensual same-sex relationships, ban discrimination and educate the public,” he said.

The remixed video, which was created by the gay rights group AllOut.org, has been viewed more than 4,000 times since its YouTube debut. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
