LGBT rights march

On October 11, 2009 some members and supporters of the LGBT community marched in front of the White House, Washington. Their purpose was to voice out their concerns about the few actions the Obama administration made to help their cause so far. President Obama, during his campaign for presidency, got a lot of support from the LGBT community because his views on gay rights.

President Obama adressed members of the Human Rights Campaign on Saturday October 10, 2009 in Washington saying;

I appreciate that many of you don’t believe progress has come fast enough. Do not doubt the direction we are heading and the destination we will reach.

Even though not a lot has been done according to many critics of the Obama administration, the President attempted to reassure the gay community that the plan proposed before he became president were still in his agenda. On that Sunday, protesters were able to voice their frustration on issues such as marriage and don’t ask don’t tell” military policy in a peaceful way.
