President Obama Issues 2016 LGBT Pride Month Proclamation

President Obama has unveiled his final LGBT Pride Month Proclamation. Here's hoping our next leader believes in the rights of LGBT people as much as he did. I'm gonna miss this guy.

Sorry, off subject, but wanted to pass along this posting by Gavin Newsom on his FB today. Worthy of a post here?

In 2004, after I ordered the city clerk to give same-sex couples marriage licenses, I quickly became a pariah in the Democratic Party. I was accused of endangering Sen. Kerry's campaign for president, my speech at the national convention was cancelled, and most hurtful, major democratic candidates and elected officials -- some of whom were my friends -- refused to be photographed with me or even be in the same room with me. I was being demonized by the left and the right. Only one major figure in the Dem party was willing to be photographed with me: Hillary Clinton. In 2004, we did an event together down at Delancey Street in San Francisco. I'll never forget that moment -- that when I was being attacked for my position on same sex marriage and what we did in San Francisco, she was willing to stand with me in public when no one else was. ‪#‎ImWithHer‬
