Obama and the Gays is an in-depth look at the career of President Barack Obama and his views about gay-related issues, starting when he ran for Illinois senate in 1996 and ending mid-way through his term as president. Written by Tracy Baim, publisher of Windy City Times, the book also includes articles and essays by some of the most respected journalists, bloggers and activists in gay media.
This book, with 570 pages and 140 images/photos, has extensive coverage, in words and images, of Obama’s record on gay and AIDS issues, including detailed quotes from his speeches, photos at gay events, and answers to surveys early in his career.
Essayists and writers in the book include Lisa Keen, Kerry Eleveld, Michelangelo Signorile, Phill Wilson, Chuck Colbert, Pam Spaulding, Wayne Besen, and many more.
This promises to be an amazing book and the timing of the release date is impecable — right before the midterm election and the week the LGBT community got screwed on Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell.
So, please consider going out and BUYING IT!!
