In the wake of President Obama’s historic endorsement of same-sex marriage, the Obama campaign released a video yesterday highlighting the President’s accomplishments for LGBT civil rights. Narrated by Glee’s Jane Lynch, the video features a candid interview where President Obama talks about his “evolving” views and the impact LGBT people have made on his life.
“I don’t think there’s been a single moment when LGBT issues became important to me,” the President states. “I think it’s the accumulation of a lifetime of friends and family, people I’ve gotten to know, who have helped me understand how the fight for LGBT rights is consistent with that most important part of America’s character, which is to constantly expand opportunity and fairness to everybody.”
