During a commencement speech at the all-male Morehouse College on Sunday (19 May), President Barack Obama encouraged students - straight or gay - to be good spouses and parents.
'... That’s what I’m asking all of you to do: Keep setting an example for what it means to be a man. Be the best husband to your wife, or your boyfriend, or your partner. Be the best father you can be to your children. Because nothing is more important.'
