Gay businessman sitting in First Lady’s box at SOTU

That’s good, visibility always helps. Of course, he’s a big defender of all the good work the President has done on gay issues this past year (sigh). And, unfortunately, it appears the White House did not choose to have a gay service member be our representative tonight. That would have had real impact, helping the cause of gay equality immensely. A gay businessman, on the other hand, is nice. And safe.
