Is Obama Failing His LBGT Supporters?

This magazine has made no secret of its high regard for Barack Obama. Which makes it all the more distressing for us to observe the approach that his administration is taking on gay rights. During the campaign, Obama said all the right things (well, almost all–like most national politicians, he wouldn’t endorse same-sex marriage). He invoked the importance of winning “equality” and “dignity” and “respect” for gays and lesbians. Now he is president. And one of the perks of being president is that you get to lead. But, when it comes to gay issues, leading does not seem to interest this White House.
