An Historic Time

I was rather surprised to hear President Obama say “…from Seneca to Selma to Stonewall…”

He will be noted in the history books twice, first for being the first African-American President, but for being the first President who supported full equality for the LGBT community.

Really quite remarkable when you think about. And 2012 will go into the books as the first time the Democratic party added marriage equality to their platform.

I never thought I’ be alive for a time when we LGBT people got the full measure of rights because of true leaders. And believe me, President Obama is a true leader.

  1. Obama’s speech was eloquent and moving. I hope the country will follow his lead now and recognize that the direction he is pointing to is for the good of the country and its citizens.
