Obama Mentions 'Gay Brothers and Sisters' In Speech

Obama

US President Barack Obama has made history once again in his inaugural speech that encouraged equality across the country, stating that ‘our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. If we are truly created equal then surely the love we commit to each other must be equal as well’.

Under rapturous applause, Obama also spoke of achieving equality amongst other oppressed groups:

‘It is now our generation’s task to carry on what those pioneers began, our journey is not complete until our wives, mothers and daughters, can earn a living equal to our efforts.’

‘Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity’.
