Iowa Pride Network is thrilled to have President Obama vocalize his support for marriage equality. It’s a big moment for the LGBT community—especially for young LGBT people and their allies.
Knowing the President believes that they should be treated equally and that their relationships are just as important helps young people envision a world that is more just and the courage to make it a reality.
A key part of the President’s personal story has been the influence his two girls, Sasha and Malia, have had in helping him understand how fundamental equal marriage is to a fair and just society.
It is yet another example of how important young people are in influencing national dialogue and how powerful their voices can be.
Everyday, young people are changing the world. Thank you Malia and Sasha!
