Obama, congratulations on being the first sitting President to support marriage equality. Feels like the future, and not the past. #NoFear
@barackobama inspires me once again. True leadership is when you are willing to risk your power and voice so that ALL of ours can be heard.
Thank you President Obama! Equal/Civil Rights for us all. RT! wondaland.com/2012/05/09/bar…

Proud of Barry Obama for fully endorsing gay marriage! Glad he is finally showing some spine… Let’s get married!

And in a statement posted on her website, Cyndi Lauper wrote: “President Obama continues to be a true leader for equality and I have never been prouder to call him my president than I am today. The president’s support of marriage equality gives hope and encouragement to the millions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people who feel ostracized and alone. The words of the president have reinforced that they are worthy of dignity, respect, and love – just like everyone else.”
