President Obama is showing himself from a very pro-lgbtqi angle by publishing his agenda for lgbt rights. As Care2 points out, he has done many outstanding commitments to the community like hosting the “first ever LGBT Pride reception at the White House” or repealing the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – policy.
What is even more important, he has been advocating LGBT-equality at the UN: He said in a speech: “[N]o country should deny people their rights because of who they love, which is why we must stand up for the rights of gays and lesbians everywhere.” Keep going!
Sometimes, in the middle of day-to-day struggle for equality we are not aware of how things are actually getting better. A Decade of Progress on LGBT Rights is a report which helps us to see “dramatic gains made in the U.S. from 2000 to 2009”. So are for example “14 States outlawing discrimination based on gender identity” now where only 1 did so in 2000. Nevertheless, there are still many fields where improvement is needed like HIV and Aids. But there is progress.
