President Barack Obama in his tenure issued a proclamation recognizing June as Pride Month for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Pride.
Let’s remember his historic words:
“As progress spreads from state to state, as justice is delivered in the courtroom, and as more of our fellow Americans are treated with dignity and respect, our nation becomes not only more accepting, but also more equal. “Obama said. “During Pride Month for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT), we celebrate the victories that have affirmed freedom and fairness and we pledge again to complete the work that remains to be done and support for the approval of the Non Employment. -Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would prohibit discrimination in the workplace based on sexual orientation and gender identity: “LGBT workers in too many states can only be fired because of their sexual orientation or gender identity; Continuous to ask Congress to correct this injustice by passing the Employment Non Discrimination Act … I ask the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice wherever it exists and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people! “
President Bill Clinton was the first president to recognize Gay Pride Month in 1999.
