barack obama 150x150 BREAKING: PRESIDENT OBAMA ENDORSES MARRIAGE EQUALITYYes, he just did.

An historic day in the struggle for LGBT equality. Thank you, Mr. President.

More later, after I wipe away the tears.

 

UPDATE 1: Here’s something like a personal statement, now that I’ve had time to collect my thoughts a bit:

“Evolution complete: Today, Barack Obama made history by becoming the first U.S. President to publicly say that ALL loving and committed couples deserve the freedom to marry. In my lifetime, I don’t think I’ve ever been prouder to be an American. On behalf of my beloved husband Michael and myself, thank you, Mr. President. Thank you, through my tears, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
