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

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
