President Obama and the democrats are tearin' it UP for the all the non-straights out there!
Tuesday's Democratic National Convention marked an unprecedented political win for the LGBT community, as a record number of non-straight delegates were welcomed by the Prez and his fellow lovers of democracy!
486 gay, lesbian, or transgender delegates from all 50 states - a whopping 8% of the whole number of delegates present - attended the DNC which featured LGBT community speakers among the event's other impressive pontificators.
Jerame Davis of National Stonewall Democrats, a gay-rights affiliate of the party, states:
"We’ve been an underrepresented demographic in politics for a long time. Finally seeing us appropriately represented is just a thrill."
Yes! It's always a thrill to see marginalized groups given a fair slice of the political pie!
Plus it reminds us of what makes this country so truly astonishing and an enviable place to dwell: our diversity and our constitutional RIGHT to be different and have our own thoughts, feelings and ideas!
And for a lovely hump day treat, check out some snaps of our sexxxxy president doing his presidential thaang (below)!
