Good God I love President Obama!

"We take this opportunity to reaffirm that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights are human rights, to celebrate the dignity of every person, and to underscore that all people deserve to live free from fear, violence, and discrimination, regardless of who they are or whom they love.  We work toward this goal every day. Here at home, we are working to end bias-motivated violence, combat discrimination in the workplace, and address the specific needs of transgender persons. Overseas, I am proud of the steps that the United States has taken to prioritize the protection and promotion of LGBT rights in our diplomacy and global outreach."

Barack Obama


  1. Every time I hear him mention an LGBTQ person, or our struggle, I smile. It's still so amazing to me that it took until the 21st century for a sitting president to even admit we exist.

  2. I agree with you, Biki. And Bob, and anne marie. And Hillary is in the same boat, so for God's sake, I hope she gets elected. Thankfully, with the clown car that is the GOD candidates list, I think we have a damn good chance.

  3. Yes, the first sitting president to unapologetically encourage the equal treatment of ALL under the GLBT umbrella.

  4. Seen from here north of the border, he's the best President the US has had in a long time. And all the good ones seem to have been Democrats, since Theodore Roosevelt, who was the last of the good republican presidents (Eisenhower was personally decent, but he allowed the McCarthy era unchecked).
