SOTU Includes Brief Reference to LGBT Community

Last night President Obama took a brief moment in his fourth address to Congress to reference the LGBT community.

“We will ensure equal treatment for all service members and equal benefits for their families—gay or straight,” said the President.

Earlier this week the Pentagon took a historic step forward to address inequality in our armed forces, announcing an extension of additional benefits to gay and lesbian service members and their families.

We applaud the Pentagon’s move, as well as President Obama’s mention of gay and lesbian service members.
