Look it up. It’s funny how this never gets mentioned in history lessons. US, YOU HAD A GAY PRESIDENT.

If You Love America

If you love America, why not love its victims too? Someone who cares enough about their country won’t blindly follow what the government tells them to do and let it bully, manipulate and strip away the rights of millions of people. If you see what’s going on around you—recognize the fear and hatred that is ingrained into America—and you care enough about the people living in your country to do something about it, if you try to change it, then THAT is what makes you a real patriot. Not if you let the government and the media use you as a tool for oppression.

So, happy 4th, everybody.

The handling of gay rights issues vary by state and follow trends by region.

Pretty cool interactive infographic.
