President Obama Proclaims June as LGBT Month


Yesterday President Obama issued a proclamation commemorating June as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) month. While declaring support for federal civil unions, conspicuously absent from this declaration is any reference to same-sex marriage or efforts to repeal DOMA:

"Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans. These measures include enhancing hate crimes laws, supporting civil unions and Federal rights for LGBT couples, outlawing discrimination in the workplace, ensuring adoption rightsand ending the existing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in a way that strengthens our Armed Forces and our national security."

What are your thoughts on President Obama's proclamation?
