Rally for LGBT Equality with President Obama Tonight in Beverly Hills

President Barack Obama, the most LGBT-friendly president in history, will be at the Beverly Hilton the evening of Wednesday, May 27th, for a DNC fundraiser. Let's take this opportunity, just one day after the CA Supreme Court makes its decision on Proposition 8, to show our President our support for his daring promise to our community and to highlight the growing movement towards FULL FEDERAL EQUALITY.

At 7PM we will be joined by Lt. Dan Choi and other LGBT servicemen & women in opposition to Don't Ask Don't Tell. They will ask for response from President Obama to the letter signed by 136,000 people asking the president not to fire Lt. Choi by ending DADT.

Wednesday, May 27 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
9876 WILSHIRE BLVD
(CORNER OF SANTA MONICA & WILSHIRE BLVDS)
Beverly Hills, CA 90210

The results of that evening should be very interesting indeed.

While Obama has been making the right noises, the perception is that he is a little more reticent when it comes to take action...

fingers crossed.

I'm totally going to this.

The only way that we are ever going to get anywhere with this is to speak up and express ourselves.

EVERYONE FOLLOW ME TO THE HOTEL!

Thanks for saying Obama is the most LGBT friendly president, I think many people are losing sight of that as they grow impatient with the pace of change.

I hope he keeps his promise, but at least we don't have Bush or Clinton who outrightly threw gays under the bus.
