I have honestly never been prouder to be an American citizen than I am listening to the President of the country, my country, announce that we've got the Matthew Shepard Bill passed, he's going to end DADT and that he's going to help us 'end discrimination in all its forms'. I actually cried; I'll be honest. I am so so so so happy and proud that I voted for Obama, because it'll be because of him that one day I'll no longer feel like a second (and sometimes third) citizen.
I've included a link to the National Equality March blog and the one of Obama's speech at HRC.
This last link is for Taylor Swift's song 'Change' which made me think of this fight since I first heard it. It's just a fantastic song!
