Obama to Speak at HRC Dinner

President Obama will speak to a gathering of gay rights activists this weekend, a day before thousands of people are expected to march on Washington in a demonstration calling for greater legal protections for gays, lesbians and transgendered Americans.
Mr. Obama’s appearance on Saturday at the annual dinner for the Human Rights Campaign, a leading gay rights advocacy group, represents a significant show of support for gay rights at a time when many LGBT activists have been questioning his commitment to their issues.

  1. This is great! He may not be moving as fast as we want, but he is far more progressive and supportive than what we dealt with for the prior 8 years.
