LGBT Activists will protest Obama in Boston on Friday: Being a “fierce advocate” requires advocating

When Barack Obama appears in Boston on Friday, LGBT activists will be on hand to tell him to follow through on his promises. The focus will be on Obama’s campaign commitments to repeal both Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and DOMA.

Via press release:

“We’ll be sending a strong message to President Obama that his self proclaimed title of “fierce advocate” for the LGBT community actually requires advocating on our issues. And our community will not let up until he finally follows through on his promises.” said Paul Sousa, co-chair of Join The Impact MA.

Details on the protest are here.
