Our President highlights the unsung heroes of the LGBT community.  He says, “But we also remember the unsung heroes, the millions of LGBT Americans for whom everyday acts require extraordinary courage.  The young people who came out as gay or transgendered to their parents, not knowing what to expect.  The two moms or two dads who went to an open house for a PTA meeting not knowing how they would be received.  The couple that got married, even if their bosses or neighbors wouldn’t approve, at least not right away.  Most of these heroes didn’t set out to make history, but that’s exactly what they did. Bit by bit, step by step, they bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice.  Now it’s our turn.”
