Award-winning actress, “Glee” star, and lesbian Jane Lynch narrates a just-released Obama For America campaign ad titled “President Obama and the Fight for LGBT Rights.” The campaign calls it a “documentary about LGBT rights in America,” and adds:
The video features a candid interview with President Obama, who speaks about the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, why he supports marriage equality, and what’s at stake for the LGBT community in this election.
It is a heart-warming five minutes down memory lane, and it never fails to bring a tear to my eye to hear my presider say he supports me, and all LGBT people.
The GOP has been using same-sex marriage as a wedge issue to drive voters to the polls for decades. Isn’t it fair that we turn the tables on them, by doing the same?
The video release is in conjunction with a new Obama-Biden campaign portal, “Obama Pride: LGBT Americans for Obama.”
