Los Angeles, California – SYD, Stonewall Young Democrats, LA County’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) youth advocacy group responded to President Barack Obama’s newest commitment to full Marriage Equality.
The Stonewall Young Democrats are proud to stand with President Obama as he becomes the first sitting President to fully endorse Marriage Equality. Even with over 50% of Americans now supporting full equal rights for LGBT citizens, this is a bold move by President Obama in an election year.
While there are many other issues such as banning employment discrimination and repealing DOMA that we will continue to push our leaders on, this is a big and monumental step in the LGBT, human rights movement.
Having drawn a clear distinction between himself and the on-again-off-again anti-gay Mitt Romney, we are proud to fight even harder for President Obama in the upcoming election and ensure that all Americans benefit from four more years of his Presidency.
