Month of pride

Posted in Fuck yeah! by Nancy on May 30, 2010

President Obama is often accused of not doing enough, or doing too little too late to make progress on issues he campaigned on. One issue was the repealing of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” bill, which bans gay people from serving in the military if they reveal their sexual orientation.

Just last month, Obama was heckled by angry gay rights activists at a Democratic fundraiser. Fair enough – politician’s legacies are filled with broken or unfulfilled promises. But they didn’t have to wait too long for change: “the Senate armed services committee and the full House of Representatives in quick succession on Thursday approved measures to repeal the 1993 law.”

He’s now gone a step further and declared June 2010 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.

Obama Pride sure hedged their bets with the right guy.
