    Obama, Obama he's our man, if he can't do it no-one can!!!!

    Obama Speaks Out For LGBT Rights In Kenya
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/...b0224d88327486

    President Barack Obama spoke out forcefully in favor of LGBT rights during a press conference with Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta in Nairobi on Saturday, saying that the idea that a "law-abiding citizen" could be treated differently under the law was simply wrong. Some African leaders had warned Obama not to raise the issue of LGBT rights on the trip. Being gay is illegal in Kenya. Asked about the status of LGBT Kenyans on Saturday, Obama did not hesitate to speak out in favor of equality.

    "I believe in the principle of treating people equally under the law, and that they are deserving of equal protection under the law and that the state should not discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation," Obama said. "I'm unequivocal on this," he continued. "If somebody is a law-abiding citizen who is going about their business and working in a job and obeying the traffic signs and doing all the other things that all citizens are supposed to do, and not harming anybody, the idea that they are gonna be treated differently or abused because of who they love is wrong, full stop."

    He's never officially come out, but an open secret in Hollywood, so he counts.

    Grace And Frankie Netflix Skydance Productions for Netflix
    Lily Tomlin as Frankie

    Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Series Or A Movie
    Bessie HBO HBO Films in association with Flavor Unit Entertainment and the Zanuck Company
    Queen Latifah as Bessie Smith (another pretty big "open secret" even if she's denied it in the past (but heck, Liberace sued (and won!) when someone called him Homosexual)).
    I did forget Lily Tomlin (whoops, cos I love her!) thank-you for correcting me, but I am not "counting" closeted actors like Kevin Spacey or Queen Latifah. That is not progress, that is not worth celebrating. The entire issue of Hollywood encouraging actors to stay in the closet is shameful; and NO, we do not count closeted cowards when praising LGBT nominated actors.

    Ohhhhhhh, that's interesting but frustrating too.

    Obama is so cool. I wish we had a great leader like that. I know he's not perfect but he's trying which is better than what we have.

    Anyway just got back from the LGBT comic book meet. We discussed the wicked and the divine. It was so much fun and there was a breathtakingly handsome guy there. I wanted to talk to him but the next table over was so loud! We couldn't hear each other! I still had a blast though. Next up, the gaymers meet up!

    understood.. but please do give Kate McKinnon props.

    she's been out since she started, and is the only Openly Gay cast member of SNL (and only the 1st openly gay woman, if I'm not mistaken.. . Terry Sweeny was the first openly gay male, but he only lasted one season). . . .McKinnon is considered a breakout star on the show

    McKinnon is a beast out there, I remember her character from 'The Big Gay Sketch Show', Fitzwilliam

    kind of want him to pop up on SNL but that may be a bit much to hope for
