2013 State of the Union







President Obama continued his trend of including references to LGBT people in his State of the Union address Tuesday night (February 12). Early in the one-hour speech, he told Congress and the national television audience, “It is our unfinished task to restore the basic bargain that built this country – the idea that if you work hard and meet your responsibilities, you can get ahead, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or who you love.”

Later, in talking about the military, he said, “We will ensure equal treatment for all service members, and equal benefits for their families – gay and straight.”
