President Obama celebrates Valentine’s Day and marriage equality

Remember those long ago days when President Barack Obama was the enemy of LGBTI equality?

He signed the bill ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, his Justice Department argued section three of the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional and would no longer be defended in court, and he created new regulations for hospitals when it comes to visiting rights and LGBTI families.

However, there was his famous, or infamous, ‘evolving’ on same-sex marriage. Despite all of the above work, many of us saw him as our prime enemy because he wasn’t aboard the marriage train.

Those days are long gone. Late last year, Out named him the Ally of the Year. Looks like the Democrat takes those ally duties seriously, at least when it comes to social media. On this Valentine’s Day, he posted the below poster on Twitter. Hard to disagree with the sentiment, no?

Thanks again, Mr. President.
