OBAMA ANNOUNCES JUNE AS GAY PRIDE month

Seeking to boost himself with the Democrats gay voting base, President Barack Obama is proclaiming June to be "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month." "I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans," Obama says in the proclamation.
The administration is also making gay rights a pillar of its foreign policy. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pledged Monday to fight for gay rights and called on the world to stop discrimination and violence based on sexual orientation, according to CNN.
But though the proclamation can be found through a search on the White House Web site, it does not appear in the usual press or release area of the site, the Christian Post pointed out.
This is just one more example of Obama's apparent desire to distance himself from the gay community, wrote one poster on the gay-oriented Tips-Q blog site.This follows the White House's substantial dilution of gay civil rights objectives on the same website.
What exacerbates this situation and foments frustration is President Obama's failure to adequately address any of these issues. The administration feels that it is necessary to reflect reduced objectives for GLBT rights. Yet they have failed to explain why they have done so.
