Tune In for the White House’s Gay Pride Celebration at 4:25 EST


Live stream of Obama giving a shit about gays will be here here.

An interesting preface, from Hendrik Hertzberg:

At the time of the Stonewall uprising, Barack Obama was a seven-year-old grade-schooler in Jakarta, Indonesia. This week, as President of the United States, he will welcome an assemblage of prominent gay citizens, along with their partners and, in some cases, their spouses, to the East Room of the White House for a commemoration of the movement the uprising sparked. From the perspective of forty years ago, that is remarkable enough. But just as remarkable is the fact that many of these same citizens believe that this still new President has done too little to advance their cause. They have a point.
