Obama Supports Freedom to Marry for Same-Sex Couples
Thank you President Obama.
“It was bold, it was historic, it was the right thing to do,” said Ron deHarte, President of Greater Palm Springs Pride.
Today’s support is welcome progress in our efforts to achieve full equality for all. The 2012 Palm Springs Pride theme “Long May It Wave” is a salute to the worldwide symbol of equality whose rainbow stripes have led a fight for equality while embracing our diversity and celebrating the unity of our community. We celebrate the past and future progress toward equality. With President Obama’s support of same-sex couples to marry, the theme will also celebrate the profound sense of pride and renewed hope for equality that the President of the United States of America brings to individuals around the world.
