Obama Proclaims June LGBT Pride Month

The Obama administration yesterday declared the month of June to be LGBT Pride month.

As in the previous seven years, an official declaration on the White House website Monday calls for Americans to unite behind the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community.

“The fight for dignity and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people is reflected in the tireless dedication of advocates and allies who strive to forge a more inclusive society,” the president wrote. “They have spurred sweeping progress by changing hearts and minds and by demanding equal treatment — under our laws, from our courts, and in our politics. This month, we recognize all they have done to bring us to this point, and we recommit to bending the arc of our Nation toward justice.”

“NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2016 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month,” dictated the 44th US president. “I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.”

The latest proclamation arrived with little fanfare; no tweets, Facebook posts or rainbow-colored White House.

The president’s announcement comes as the administration has inserted itself amid a heated debate over public school transgender bathroom rules, with the White House currently embroiled in a legal battle with North Carolina, as several states sue the federal government claiming overreach.

Last June, Obama stoked controversy when he ordered the White House lit in the colors of the rainbow following a Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage.

An issue of Newsweek in May 2012 also labeled Obama “The First Gay President” for his legacy in progressing the gay-rights movement.
