    He lit our white house in gays colors..shame on him...they don't deserve that,Homosexuality is a sin against God. those who life that way will have to ask to be forgiven..Most don't care what they do, God is who they have to be worried about

    He was anti-same-sex marriage, which is tantamount to anti-gay, until he changed his mind for political reasons. Similar to good old Hillary and John Kerry! And that liberal icon, Bill Clinton, implemented don’t ask don’t tell. Yet somehow we all still believe that the Democrats are the party of the LBGTQ community. Go figure

    Well, if he did then he supported an imaginary community. The LGBTQ community doesn't exist. It's just a ridiculous, tiresome fantasy.

    He's an opportunist. He only started supporting gay rights because he wanted their votes, just like Hillary.

    I think you can tell me. Obama opposed gay marriage during the time California voted on the issue.

    Well considering he’s married to a transsexual formerly known as Michael, I would say that’s a given.

    Is that even a question? He did so much for the LGBTQ+ community during his presidency, like repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and legalizing same-sex marriage. As he also once said:

    He opposed gay marriage. When it became politically useful, he started supporting homosexuality.

    Unquestionably yes. In fact since he was so staunch a supporter of the lgbt community, I can’t understand why you would ask this question. It was not that long ago when he was still in power.
