LGBT celebrities come out for Barack Obama’s re-election in a new YouTube video that also features the president’s coming out for marriage equality.
The video features Jane Lynch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Billie Jean King, George Takai, Wanda Sykes, Zachary Quinto and Chaz Bono talking about casting a vote for Obama and standing up for equality.
The stars talk about being gay and the coming out, a process made possible, in part, by change and progress.
Billie Jean King says the president has pushed change and progress for LGBT people faster than any president in the nation’s history.
She adds, “You always have to protect change.”
All of them say, “Come out and vote for Barack Obama.”
Obama is featured talking about civil rights, repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” and marriage equality in the 5-minute spot.
