Being the State Secretary Kerry issued an official apology for discriminationg people on basis of their sexual orientation. Kerry has issued a statement saying that discrimination against LGBT State Department workers has gone on since the 1940s. In a strongly worded statement, he says denying some people jobs and forcing diplomats out of the foreign service was not right that time and it is still not right nowadays. But the apology disappeared some time after Sunday. The Wayback Machine, which shows archived versions of websites, shows that the apology was still showing as recently as Sunday. Other information relating to the State Department’s special envoy for the human rights of LGBT persons, as well as Pride month observances has gone missing from the site.
