“The repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ It was brave of Obama to push for that. No other president did something like that. It was long overdue. The people who benefited [from the repeal] will never forget it.”
“New York passing gay marriage. I was very happy for gay people when that happened. My first reaction was, ‘Finally!’ It’s very significant because New York is the largest state. They’re setting an example for the rest of the country.”
“Obama supporting same-sex marriage. It challenges the status quo in a way that no other president has done. It’s a symbolic gesture. But it will change the conversation in Washington. In the LGBT community, people will remember this event as a sign that their president stood by them.”
“Hillary Clinton addressing the United Nations and saying that human rights should be extended to the LGBT community. I think that was great. But it will be difficult for some countries to comply. At least she’s helping them move in the right direction.”
