WATCH: Obama-Appointed Gay Ambassador Daniel Baer Introduces Himself and His Partner

In June President Obama tapped Daniel Baer, a former Georgetown professor and more recently deputy assistant secretary of state, to be one of four gay U.S. Ambassadors. Baer will oversee the Organization for Security and Co-operation In Europe (OSCE) in Vienna, Austria. In the just-released video (above) Baer shares some highlights of his career, plans for the future, and introduces his partner Brian and their greyhound Cleo.

      While we may think we are not winning this war on homophobia, there have been huge changes for the positive. This one of them. This could never have happened even 20 years ago. Very positive story.

      Fantastic. I’m always heartened by these incremental changes. And glad he’s not being sent to some muslim country like John Stevens

      @balehead: That is totally how I handle issues of global human rights as well.

      (Oddly, it’s also how I overcompensate for my non-whiteness… but that’s just me.)

      Best of all is the fact that they are shown holding hands. This is indeed a breakthrough.

      Forget about them being gay – forget that – but he’s SUCH a phony. Phony video, phony ‘corporate’ PR-written, phony rubbish.

      Gay trendy elites trying to brainwash LGBTs into the 2-party system charade of lie-based war, poverty, in-effect slavery, pollution, and eradication of human rights.

      Congrats on serving the evil empire!
