Obama Delivers Surprise Video Welcome At Gay Games Opening Ceremony
President Barack Obama made a special video appearance to help open the Gay Games 9 in Cleveland, Ohio on Saturday night!
The Gay Games bring together thousands of LGBT athletes and supporters from all over the world. Check out his speech!
In an excerpt Obama says:
"Even since 2006, when the Games were last held in the United States, in my hometown of Chicago, we've come a long way in our commitment to the equal rights of LGBT people here and around the world...I know some of you have come from places where it requires courage, even defiance, to come out - sometimes at great personal risk. You should know that the United States stands with you and for your human rights, just as our athletes stand with you in these Games."
Thanks for your continued support, Mr. President!!
