The Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Monday advanced
Tony Blinken’s nomination to become the next secretary of state.

Blinken last week during his confirmation hearing told U.S.
Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) he would “repudiate” the Commission for
Unalienable Rights.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in 2019 created
the commission
that sought to stress “natural laws and natural
rights.” Mary Ann Glendon, a Harvard Law School professor and former U.S.
ambassador to the Vatican who is known for her strong opposition to marriage
rights for same-sex couples, chaired it.

Blinken told Markey he would once again allow ambassadors to fly Pride flags at their embassies if confirmed to succeed Pompeo. Blinken also pledged to raise the State Department’s special envoy for the promotion of LGBTQ rights to an ambassador level position.

The U.S. Senate is expected to confirm Blinken in the coming days.
