CNN's Don Lemon Gets Reactions to Obama's Address from Gay Americans on the National Mall: VIDEO


Today's inaugural speech from President Obama was the first in history to address gay rights (watch it HERE). Don Lemon gets reaction from two gay Americans on the National Mall.

Said one man: "I hope it pushes us forward and makes us equal with everyone else, included with everyone else in the country. It makes me feel good to be an American right now and think that things are going to be better in the future."

  1. President Obama is the most pro-LGBT president in the history of the United States. Here is a link where I compile all of his accomplishments, declarations, and every mention of the LGBT Community. Included are links and videos. I try to update often, so check back often!

  2. Be careful Jerry, if you suck any harder you'll rip it clean off.

  5. The question of whether LGBT rights are included in civil rights has been acrimoniously debated within the African-American community. I haven't polled the living descendants of Dr. King, but in recent memory, this was a question that divided the family.
    That the President of the United States has weighed in so publicly on this issue may well turn out to be the most important product of the speech.

  8. 'Blake' (or whatever the REAL name is) is nothing more than a plant (troll)...probably from either the Mormon or the Catholic churches. He (or she) isn't real at all. Har! Nothing and no one can spoil this beautiful day for me. Nothing!

  11. This was (in my humble opinion) the most triumphant day in LGBT History.

    We were rounded up and killed by Nazis.

    Burned in small rural areas for generations.

    Our establishments had raids with patrons beat inside.

    Our kids killed themselves at exponentially high rates due to bullying.

    and here we sit today.....a day of triumph, love, and LGBT history embraced for the rich and beautiful page it has in history.

    Thanks to all the men and women in our community who have now gone, who have made this possible

  12. @TOOKMELT,

    Don't forget the leftist MARXIST deserve honorable mention right alongside the Nazis. They persecuted gays and others, too. Still do.
