Rosendahl Says Obama Has 'Come a Long Way' on Gay Rights Stance

Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl issues statement on President Barack Obama's gay rights advocacy during his inaugural address.

Bill Rosendahl, the first openly gay man elected to the Los Angeles City Council, issued a statement Tuesday following President Barack Obama's remarks on gay rights during his inaugural address, which received a strong response from gay rights advocates.

I was ecstatic about the way President Obama presented his remarks on gay rights. His argument was impressive — and I was delighted that he put the Stonewall riots next to the Selma march on his list of key civil-rights turning points. The President has come a long way on his position and I am optimistic that everyone in this country will soon enjoy their basic civil and human rights.

Bill Rosendahl, 11th District
