President Obama has hopped on Dan Savage‘s “It Gets Better” campaign against gay bullying–even as his administration has decided to appeal a court’s ruling that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is unconstitutional.
Savage spoke with CNN this morning about Obama’s video and said that while he was happy for Obama’s support, he wants to see policy change to accompany the rhetoric.
“Here you have the President of the United States saying that you didn’t choose it — to be gay — and you will get through this…that said, the President of the United States has the power to do more than assure LGBT kids that it will get better; the President of the United States has the power to make it better for LGBT adults and children.”
