Obama Proclaims June as the LGBT Pride Month; Says LGBT Group Allows a More Perfect Union

The Christian Post website reports today (June 1, 2011) that President Obama yesterday declared June as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) month. He has issued similar proclamations each year he has been in office.

The proclamation reads in part, "The story of America's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community is the story of our fathers and sons, our mothers and daughters, and our friends and neighbors who continue the task of making our country a more perfect Union."

According to a study released in April of this year, an estimated 3.5 percent of adults in the United States identify themselves as lesbian, gay, or bisexual, and an estimated 0.3 percent of adults as transgender.
