Obama Proclamation Includes Lesbian Moms

leave a comment »

In a proclamation honoring Mother’s Day, President Obama made special mention of families that include two mothers.

In a Friday statement, Obama said “From our first moments in this world and throughout our lives, our mothers protect us from harm, nurture our spirits, and encourage us to reach for our highest aspirations.” The proclamation reads “Nurturing families come in many forms, and children may be raised by two parents, a single mother, two mothers, a step-mom, a grandmother, or a guardian.”

Jennifer Chrisler from the Family Equality Council said the message was a nice gesture.

Chrisler: “It’s clear that the President has done many symbolic things to include the LGBT community. And it’s also true that we need to see passage in Congress of really important and significant measures.”

Chrisler said she’d like to see Obama taking the lead on issues like the “Every Child Deserves a Family” act.
