Obama Declares LGBT Pride Month

Obama has declared June National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered Pride Month. Here is his declaration. I hope he carries through with all the policies he declares he will support here.

June is usually when GLBT pride events happen to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which are generally credited with being the starting point of the national gay rights movement. That movement brought many courageous GLBT folk out, and knowing an LGBT person has been the catalyst for as much change as we've had towards gay equality. May the change continue until all people in this country are equal before the law.

Another piece of happy news to celebrate is the passage into law of marriage equality in New Hampshire.
