The cynical side of me feels that President Obama is just playing politics because he wants to get the gay vote and the liberal vote. Remember this year is an election year in the United States. However, I think it is wonderful that President Obama has finally said he supports gay marriage. Gay people in America deserve the same rights as heterosexuals. It is interesting that the closeted ABC lesbian journalist Robin Roberts interviewed Obama about marriage equality. I wish Robin Roberts would come out of the closet. I think it would be fantastic that a prominent black lesbian reporter in America spoke up about gay rights.
