June is LGBT Pride Month. In another show of solidarity with the LGBT community, President Obama released a recent video commemorating the history of LGBT activism in the United States. He also calls on his fellow Americans to honor openly gay servicemen and women, and applaud the courage of teachers and students who stand up against anti-gay bullying.
“Change happens because ordinary people, countless unsung heroes of our American story, stand up and demand it,” the President says. “The story of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans is no different.”
“Perfecting our union isn’t something we can do in just one month,” he adds. “But we can remember those who came before us, we can summon the courage to build on their legacy, and we can renew our commitment, day in and day out, to be the kind of people who make change happen.”
