I have to agree with columnist Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post. BHO should indeed do a speech on gay rights, essentially give us all a taste of this self described "fierce advocate" for the cause. I agree with many that the gay rights movement is indeed the latest iteration of the broader American civil rights movement.
Since the White House decided to issue a proclamation at the beginning of gay pride month, it would be fitting for him to offer his words at the close of the month. June 28, 2009 will mark the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. I couldn't think of a better day to hear words from the POTUS.
