The Obama Administration and Gay Rights

Hosted by

In 1969, even civil rights activists were barely aware of the so-called Stonewall Rebellion that began the movement for equal treatment of gays and lesbians in the United States. But yesterday, President Obama comemorated that event in the White House with 250 movement leaders. He acknowledged that, despite extraordinary progress in the past 40 years, many are very impatient.
