Is Obama a stand-out candidate for gay rights?

Barack Obama has created Obama Pride – a section created specifically for gays and lesbians – on his website.

On it he says, “While we have come a long way since the Stonewall riots in 1969, we still have a lot of work to do. Too often, the issue of LGBT rights is exploited by those seeking to divide us. But at its core, this issue is about who we are as Americans. It’s about whether this nation is going to live up to its founding promise of equality by treating all its citizens with dignity and respect.”

The “blog” portion of Obama Pride is a bit frustrating because the entries aren’t listed in order, on the main page. You have to search for the word “gay” to get a complete listing of gay-related blog posts.

However, it’s an awesome way to reach-out to lesbian and gay voters.

BTW, this entry was NOT paid for by Obama for America
