First Time in Decades, The Advocate Endorses Candidate for President

The Advocate's endorsement:

For the first time in decades, The Advocate has a candidate it can endorse for president. That candidate is Barack Obama. Never has the substantial progress in equal rights and treatment of LGBT people been more at risk than in this presidential contest. This election presents a choice between starkly opposing futures. . . 

The Advocate’s last endorsement was decades ago, but the president’s statement of May 9, unequivocally in favor of marriage equality, along with his record on LGBT rights, has distinguished him for the ages and has made it clear that he is a transformational leader and our best choice for president.
