Obama Talks About Maryland Marriage Equality Referendum
This afternoon in Baltimore, Maryland, President Obama spoke about LGBT issues at a campaign event.
According to the transcript provided by the White House, he said, “We’re not going back to the days when you could be kicked out of the United States military just because of who you are and who you love. (Applause.) We’re moving forward to a country where we treat everybody fairly and everybody equally, with dignity and respect. And here in Maryland, thanks to the leadership of committed citizens and Governor O’Malley, you have a chance to reaffirm that principle in the voting booth in November. It’s the right thing to do. (Applause.)”
