Its sad to say but I had no idea that this website even existed. I supposed during the last administration I had no desire to know what schemed they were up to next. I checked it out for the first time today and I am loving it. It has so much information about current events, the agenda, the issues, a blog, and so much more!

This is one of the pages of the Agenda that deals with Civil Rights. I am so happy to see this on an official federal website. I think that civil rights are one of the most important things that we can defend here in the United States. If you look to the bottom of the page it goes over all sorts of LGBT rights and goals for this administration. It is so good to see that the “gay issues” are not just shoved off into a corner, or swept under the rug. They are right there for the whole world to see.

Barack Obama is planning on giving full civil unions to LGBT people with full federal rights. That is the key there folks! The civil Unions that we have in place in various states around the country are a great step but they do not provide full federal rights that many married people enjoy. Also he talks about getting rid of the ridiculous dont ask dont tell policy and finally giving members of the LGBT community an opportunity to serve in the nations armed forces without fear of discrimination.

I can not begin to tell you how excited I am for this administration to set some of their goals into actions. I am not expecting these things to happen over night. You have to be realistic. But the fact that they are brought out into the open on active issues on the Presidents agenda is a huge step. I am confident that Barack Obama will live up to his promises, and I cant wait till the day when all citizens of this country are truly equal.
