Hooray - you're gay!

Rainbow cake for everyone!

We're more than halfway through June and I keep forgetting to write about a pretty fabulous event that happened recently. On the 1st, President Obama officially proclaimed June "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LBGT) Pride Month."

Holy shit! That's pretty damn momentous. And long overdue.

I wonder if the 2009 is a typo? I did the same thing on my wedding invitations...
;)

Obama is such a charmer (unrelated).

I'm celebrating by continuing to lust after Kent Boyd on So You Think You Can Dance!

Happy LGBT Pride Month, indeed! However....If Obama really cared about the LGBT community, he wouldn't have gone on the record multiple times during his campaign as being AGAINST same-sex marriage. Maybe he was just trying to get elected. Fine. But now that he's president, it is about damn time he extends basic civil rights to everyone.

Hush - Agreed.

Now why didn't I think of baking that cake?

And thanks for the shout-out on this one, Raina

I didn't know he'd done that, how nice - is he gonna lead a parade too? But that seems like putting an ginormous cart before the horse - so, what Hush said - civil rights first please.

Thanks for writing about this! I had not heard, but am so happy to hear it now. We are so far behind most Western countries in extending this most basic of human rights! Go team Obama!
