Queen to sign charter supporting gay rights
LONDON (KGO) -- Britain's Queen Elizabeth will make history on Monday when she signs a new charter supporting equal rights for women and gay people.
This is said to be the first time that Queen Elizabeth has openly supported gay rights in her 61-year reign. It's a break from tradition for the Queen, who usually steers clear of making political decisions.
This week the Monarch will make her first public appearance since she was hospitalized with a stomach infection last week.
