President Barack Obama is telling gay supporters that they will have a friend and "fellow advocate" in the White House as long as he is president.
Obama spoke to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender guests during a White House reception marking LGBT Pride Month. He touted his administration's work on gay rights issues, including repealing the military's ban on openly gay service members. He said even though it may have taken more time than they would like, gays and lesbians have seen progress and lasting change under his administration.
The president also referenced his recent public embrace of gay marriage. He said that while some Americans may still be evolving on same-sex marriage, he and wife, Michelle, "have made up our minds on this issue." The remark drew extended applause.
