US Vice President Joe Biden, paying a visit to Provincetown, Massachusetts, over the weekend to headline a pair of fundraisers, had high praise for the area's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender residents.
'Many of you have advanced civil rights at great expense,' he said. 'If I had to use one adjective to describe this community it'd be courage. You have summoned the courage to speak out, to come out. We owe you.'
