... Not with the audacity of hope, but with the audacity of sin, President Obama calls all Americans to celebrate the depravity of man in some of its most grotesque forms
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the
United States, do hereby proclaim June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and
Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to turn
back discrimination and prejudice everywhere it exists.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of June, in
the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United
States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.
