US President Obama issued a LGBT Pride Month proclamation to on June 1, 2009. The Proclamation comes on the 40th anniversary of Stonewall:"Forty years ago, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City resisted police harassment that had become all too common for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. Out of this resistance, the LGBT rights movement in America was born. During LGBT Pride Month, we commemorate the events of June 1969 and commit to achieving equal justice under law for LGBT Americans."Here is the complete proclamation (PDF).
