Obama Supports Marriage Equality

iknowmine staff - Friday, May 11, 2012
I will say in the president’s statement yesterday, he cited that the reason this evolution happened — and I do believe passionately it was a true evolution. The reason he came around, if you will, is because gays and lesbians somehow became interwoven into his consciousness and his life, whether by people making pilgrimages to the white house like I did to share my story with the administration or a more natural organic way. His kids go to school with people who have same sex parents. When the storytelling and when lives are interwoven into a person’s life, it’s awfully hard to not understand love.

- Chely Wright on Obama’s change of heart in supporting marriage equality (via hellyeahscarleteen)

Story telling is a big part of Alaska Native life. How has storytelling changed your perspective in life on a subject?
