BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE tranny cams UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
As progress spreads through State in order to State, as justice is actually delivered in the courtroom,
so in which as much much more of our fellow Americans tend to be handled together with dignity
along with respect -- our Nation gets for you to be not only a lot more accepting, yet much more
equal as well. Throughout Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and also Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month, we
celebrate victories that have affirmed freedom as well as fairness, so we recommit ourselves to
completing the job that will remains.
Last year, supporters of equality celebrated the particular Supreme Court's decision to strike down
an integral provision in the Protection of Marriage Act, the ruling which, from long last, gave loving,
dedicated families your respect along with legal protections they deserve. This is unacceptable.
Inside many locations across the globe, LGBT people deal with persecution, arrest, or even state-
sponsored execution. As Well As within the many years ahead, we'll remain devoted in order to
addressing wellness disparities inside the LGBT neighborhood by implementing the particular Cost-
effective care Act and the National HIV/AIDS Strategy -- which focuses on improving care whilst
decreasing HIV transmission rates amongst communities nearly all from risk.
Our commitment to advancing equality for that LGBT neighborhood extends way beyond our
borders. Here at home, we now have strengthened laws against violence towards LGBT Americans,
taken motion in order to stop bullying along with harassment, and also prohibited discrimination
within housing along with hospitals. Regardless of this progress, LGBT workers in a lot of States
could be fired just due to their sexual orientation or perhaps gender identity; I still contact about the
Congress for you to correct this injustice simply by passing the actual Employment Non-
Discrimination Act. I contact upon the people in the United States of America to eliminate prejudice
everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the genuinely amazing diversity of the American people.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I get hereunto set my hand this thirtieth day associated with May, inside
the year in our Lord two thousand fourteen, and also in the Independence in the united States
associated with America the two hundred as well as thirty-eighth.
al-and-transgender-pride-mon. Within trying for you to keep with this decision, my Administration
can be extending family as well as spousal rewards -- through immigration advantages in order to
military family members benefits -- to always be able to legally married same-sex couples.
My Administration proudly is an acronym alongside all people who fight for LGBT rights. Subsequent
his or her example, permit every folks speak pertaining to tolerance, justice, and dignity -- simply
because if hearts as well as minds still alter more than time, laws will too.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President in the United States Associated With America
involving America, through virtue in the authority vested within me through the Constitution as well
as the laws in the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2014 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and also
Transgender Pride Month
