    Add one more check mark on the growing list of promises kept. And keep in mind, these were promises to be fulfilled during the President’s time in office. We’re only one-quarter into his presidency. If this is failure, let’s have more of it.

    Wait a minute…. I don’t see Dan Choi. Did he decide not to come or he couldn’t make it.

    This President has done more for gay Americans than any before him:

    He’s appointed more gay and transgender people to the Fed in the first year of his Presidency than Clinton did in his entire 8 years.

    He signed the Matthew Shepard Act into law.

    If you’re gay and your partner is in the hospital, you now have the right to visit your loved one.

    Partners of LGBT Fed. employees can now get some benefits, a move which prompted Google to extend benefits to all gay employees with partners – and other companies are moving to do the same.

    He lifted the HIV travel ban.

    He’s repealed DADT.

    And today:

    UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The United States succeeded on Tuesday in getting the United Nations to restore a reference to killings due to sexual orientation that had been deleted from a resolution condemning unjustified executions.

    This is not a full list of accomplishments this Administration has achieved for LGBT Americans, but it proves my point.

    LGBT voters should be proud of this president and the advances he’s made towards full equality for them. Sure more needs to be and will be done. But there’s much to proud of already.
