With “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” finally repealed, it’s been an exciting week for LGBT rights. Obama for America released this handy infographic on Tuesday, detailing the Obama Admininistration’s other accomplishments for the LGBT community.
This Wednesday, President Obama also advocated for LGBT equality in a speech to the UN. “[N]o country should deny people their rights because of who they love, which is why we must stand up for the rights of gays and lesbians everywhere,” he said.
As for what’s next, the Advocate reports that President Obama will give the keynote speech at a Human Rights Campaign event in Washington, D.C. on October 1. Watch for more coverage on Care2 Causes LGBT Rights.
