On the second anniversary of the “Let’s Move!” initiative, the Smith family had the opportunity to meet the First Lady, and Logan (10 months) couldn’t wait! As community leaders and parents, Logan’s moms Andrea and Nadine, who were married in 2009 in Vermont, are strong supporters of President Obama. The President and First Lady have worked tirelessly to ensure that LGBT families are treated with the same dignity and respect as all American families.
President Obama advocates for same-sex adoptive families, calling for equal treatment of same-sex adoptive parents and LGBT foster children. The President also promotes the health of LGBT families, ensuring LGBT patients and their partners have rights to hospital visitation and medical decision-making, as well as promoting equal access to quality health care and housing regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. President Obama and the First Lady also ensure the health and safety of LGBT families through the administration’s anti-bullying efforts, working to teach kids, teens, parents, and educators how to end bullying in America’s schools.
For these and many other reasons, families like the Smiths are supporting President Obama in the coming months. Learn more about the President’s commitment to equality and social justice for LGBT Americans.
