Evo Morales, the president of Bolivia, recently got himself into trouble by saying that the reason there are so many gay and lesbian people in developed countries is because of hormones given to chickens.
They always say that it’s harder to discriminate against gays and lesbians when you know some. That’s certainly true in Morales’ case.
Morales apologized for his statement this week after he found out that not only are there LGBT people in Bolivia, according to Los Tiempos, but some of them work in his own official residence and office, El Palacio.
The article from the Cochabamba, Bolivia newspaper is entitled “Evo pide perdón a los gays y dice que los homosexuales también trabajan en Palacio,” which means, “Evo asks pardon from the gays and says that homosexuals also work in the Palace.”
