We must hold President Obama accountable to all of his campaign promises for change, including the repeal of DOMA and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. We hold everyone accountable to support full LGBT equality, but more so those who, like President Obama, have made specific promises on our issues.”
Others have pulled out of a planned DNC fundraiser next week in Washington.
