I strongly disagree with the critics who suggest that you are not a friend of the LGBT community. In fact, your Administration has done more to advance policies supporting LGBT equality than any other. I and tens of millions of other Americans thank you for keeping your promise to end Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, ending the legal defense of the indefensible “Defense of Marriage Act,” requiring all hospitals that accept Medicare or Medicaid to ensure equal visitation rights to LGBT Americans, extending employee benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees, and lifting the HIV Entry Ban. We still have a long way to go to achieve full equality in the U.S., and I strongly believe that you are a friend and ally in that continuing struggle.
