Dan Savage was on CNN this morning talking about the President’s contribution to his It Gets Better project, and he did a great job framing the nuance of the situation. Yes, the LGBT community is correct to point out that there has been far too little action on important issues like DADT and DOMA. However, it’s also important to note that this is the first time an American President has ever spoken so candidly on such an issue, telling gay kids that they are just right the way they are, that there’s nothing wrong with them, and that it will get better.
