May 9, 2012 Chasers commented on Obama Comes Out for Same-Sex Marriage.
In response to all of of the people saying that Obama standing up for gay marriage is not soon enough or not firm enough I say this: I came out over 15 years ago, I was beaten I was tormented. In CO where I grew up they tried to pass a law to legalize discrimination against LGBT people in housing and employment. 10 years ago I never thought I would see gay marriage in my lifetime. 5 years ago, for a too brief time I saw friends get married legally in CA. Today I saw a president say "I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married" Things are changing and more rapidly than I had ever hoped. Rather than be disappointed in it not going fast enough. I am going to be grateful for it changing at all.
