Obama praises gay marriage laws

Obama during the press conference where he supported gay unions on Wednesday

The world is turning gay and US President Barack Obama is in full support.

Obama commenting on gay marriage and LGBT issues said: “I think we’re moving in a direction of greater equality, and I think that’s a good thing.”

Obama spoke five days after New York City legalized gay marriages on June 25,2011.

The night before,Obama encouraged lawmakers to support gay rights during a fundraiser with New York City’s gay community.

White House spokesman Shin Inouye told The Huffington Post that “The President has long believed that gay and lesbian couples deserve the same rights and legal protections as straight couples.” Inouye added that, “The states should determine for themselves how best to uphold the rights of their own citizens. The process in New York worked just as it should.”

And as New York celebrated the new laws, I was in Berlin the capital of Germany where  gays and gay rights supporters   marked the Christopher Street Day,a gay pride parade that attracted about half a million revelers.

  1. that was a very good statement from the American president. he fully understands that the LGBTI community exists, and that they deserve equal rights and freedom as the straight.
    this is the only way that they can also access treatment services in HIV related issues, and also sensitize the others in the closet to accept themselves, because they did no choose to be like that, because we are all made in God’s image

  2. big Mr. Prezzo,
    The mark is still widening in the kenyan’s faces, remember…………
