Dear Mr. President.

Dear Mr. President,

I want to thank you from the bottom of my oft-jaded and cynical heart. I want to thank you for standing up for the millions of marginalized citizens of the United States. I want to thank you for being bold. I want to thank you for recognizing what so many of us have always held to be true. I want to thank you for taking such a powerful step in the fight for equality. I want to thank you for not caving to pressure from hate-filled extremists. I want to thank you for defending my rights. I want to thank you for making me proud to have always been an actively political Democrat. I want to thank you for strengthening my resolve. I want to thank you for providing this shining light. I want to thank you for helping it to “get better.” And, lastly, I want to thank you for giving me yet another reason to vote for you in November.

Thank you. Thank you so much.

Signed,

A Proud (and Vocal) Gay American.
