President Obama, in a town hall meeting in Tampa, Florida took a question about same sex marriage. While speaking to the rights of Gays to enjoy full equality in the constitution, he fell short of using the word “marriage.” I recognize that this President has been very supportive of the LGBT rights movement.
However, I refuse to be satisfied until we are truly equal in the language of the law. This means that the LGBT community needs to be afforded the full right of marriage. Until then, we will still be second class citizens. It is not a grey area. It is a black or white issue.
So, President Obama, we need more commitment from you. The Change you promised for us in the Gay community will not be fully realized until Marriage is ours to hold.
