The U.S. President Barack Obama openly expressed his support of sexual minorities. We were first informed about this by a blogger, karambol. Show business stars warmly welcomed the news.
At the Good Morning America TV show, the current U.S. President Barack Obama said he supported gay marriages:
“I’ve been going through an evolution on this issue. I’ve always been adamant that gay and lesbian Americans should be treated fairly and equally, “
Hollywood stars happily responded to Obama’s statement at once.
Ellen DeGeneres tweeted:
Thank you President @BarackObama for your beautiful and brave words. I’m overwhelmed.
The star of “How I Met Your Mother” TV series, Neil Patrick Harris, who had openly declared his homosexuality like DeGeneres, thanked the president:
Bravo, Mr. President, and thank you.
Ricky Martin, the singer and father of the twins, whom he raises with his longtime partner, Carlos Gonzalez, could not refrain from applause to Obama:
I applaud President @barackobama for affirming that ALL Americans should enjoy equal rights. Historic! I will be a very proud host on Monday
Jane Lynch, a brutal coach from the “Chorus” TV series also could not but make a compliment:
Pretty darn happy today. Thanks Mr President, for supporting the dignity of my family and so many others!
However, the actress Evan Rachel Woods, known for her film “The Ides of March”, who declared her bisexuality last year, could only write a short “Hurraaaay!” in her twitter.
Today, same-sex marriages are legalized in only 8 out of 50 states (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Washington and Maryland) and the District of Columbia.
By the way, last month Barack Obama said that he was going to run for the second term in the upcoming presidential elections in 2012. Is it just a clever trick to win the support of the gay community in the U.S.?
