Inauguration 2013: Richard Blanco Breaks Down Barriers With One Day

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLatinoliciousPolitikBarack Obama

What a groundbreaking and profound moment in our nation's history!

Richard Blanco not only became the youngest, but also the first hispanic and openly gay man to deliver the inaugural poem at President Barack Obama's second inauguration today.

We're feeling an OVERWHELMING sense of pride in this moment! The importance of this moment cannot be understated!

If we may, we'd like to share just the first first stanza of Richard's poem, One Day, which states:

One sun rose on us today, kindled over our shores,
peeking over the Smokies, greeting the faces
of the Great Lakes, spreading a simple truth
across the Great Plains, then charging across the Rockies.
One light, waking up rooftops, under each one, a story
told by our silent gestures moving behind windows.

Want to hear the rest of his masterful literary work?! Ch-ch-check out the video (above)!!!

Bravo, Richard!

    Perez wont remember his name in a week. He's gay so that doesnt meet his Perez's criteria.

    Wow. Ugly gay dude (but not as ugly as ape face Perez) and stupid poem. The darkie in the oval office can appoint a homo poet; he's not going to push any homo agendas. He used you stupid pheggots, and I think it's hilarious that you're too fucking dumb to figure it out. Horndog is right. Stick to ripping off other gossip sites. You're not a reporter and the gays hate you because you're a militant retard. Nobody cares about your gay agenda, you hideous idiot.

    Oooh gay man reads a poem. I promise you this is not as big of a deal as you make it. Hell, in a week he'll be forgotten and books will never repeat his name.

    Here's my favorite Mexican poem:
    "Mexican Americans don't like to just get into gang fights,
    They like flowers and music, and white girls named Debbie too."

    The" children" posting in the comment section need to grow up. This poem says so much that you may never comprehend because you don't take the time to read….it is beautifully written.
