  1. Harvey and his beautiful rascal of a smile. 36 years after his death and he's getting more recognition as a force of nature in American politics and gay culture.
    He paved the way for someone out there to become the 1st gay President of the U.S.A. someday. It's on the horizon.

  3. With all those court appointees, Obama, the gay president, has paved the way to full gay equality.
    Actually we already have seen results in some of the legal challenges in courts.

  4. All these could be put in danger if we let another Republican president appointing another Scalia to the court.

  5. Speaking of Republicans, any bets on whether the number of Republican officials who show up to this event will require more than one hand to count them?

    May be he was. We mean openly gay and one with courage. A closeted or even openly gay president will be no good if he is not advancing the gay cause.
