President Obama Sends Video Message To LGBT Conference

President Barack Obama on Friday addressed, via video message, the 25th National Conference on LGBT Equality, also known as Creating Change 2013.

In his message, he thanked the community for “helping to lead the way to a future where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, no matter who they love or where they came from.”

The first president to send a video message to the Creating Change conference, Obama earlier this week was also the first president to directly address gay rights in his inaugural address.
