Obama applauds supreme court ruling on LGBTQ rights

Former US President, Barack Obama has said that the Supreme Court ruling which protects the LGBTQ rights is an affirmation of the country’s promise of equality for all.

Justice Neil M. Gorsuch and Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr ruled that gay and transgender employees should be included in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Wishing everybody a pride month, Obama stated that such shows how possible things can be.

He wrote: “Today’s Supreme Court ruling protecting LGBTQ Americans from workplace discrimination is an affirmation of our country’s founding promise of equality for all. I’m heartened to think of all those Americans who will no longer live in fear of being fired because of who they are and who they love. It’s a moment decades in the making, a reminder that progress can be slow—but it is always possible. And it’s validation for all those out there speaking out and marching so that our country’s founding promise might touch even more of our people. Happy Pride month, everybody.”
