Michelle Obama reveals she snuck out of White House to celebrate gay marriage ruling – NBC News

I cannot express in words how much I miss the Obamas in the White House.

As a gay American when we got the right to get married it was one of the happiest days I’ve ever had. It’s bittersweet for me, I’ll be 65 in April and my chances of getting married are very low. People ask me why I never had children, in the years that I would have wanted to adopt a child it was illegal for me to do so. It’s amazing how a government can change your life. I don’t regret anything but I’ve got to be honest to say that it would have been nice to have more of a family around me. I live alone in Los Angeles and my closest relative his in France.

bravo to Michelle Obama for being so open in her book. I ordered you to buy it.

A banner year for LGBT candidates got even stronger with Kyrsten Sinema’s Senate win РThe Washington Post

There are a lot of great organizations out there but there’s one that stands out to me in the LGBT political community. It’s the victory fund. The victory fund rooms people for public office. It’s not just a matter of wanting to run its knowing how to run for public office that’s a key to getting elected. I have a funny story about the victory fund. When I was living in Miami I was the chair of a fundraiser for the victory funds. They’re director of the elephant who was their first was a young guy and he put out 1000 posters on South Beach saying that named Alien Berrebi instead of Alain Berrebi. My friends left about that for months afterwards. But it was a great fundraiser and I hoped that I helped in a little way back then.

It’s wonderful to see the progress that the lgbtq community has had and I look forward to even more representation.
