The Gaily News: LGBT community wins big this election

LGBT rights advocates had a banner election season, and last night's results really show how much the country has evolved on that front throughout the past four years.

President Obama has made many strides for our community during his first term — including becoming the first sitting president to step up in support of marriage equality, and repealing the military's prohibitive "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy — giving us a myriad reasons to vote for him a second time around. In his victory speech last night, he even mentioned the gay community during a broad section on diversity — the first time any president has done so.
