Advocate editor in chief Matthew Breen and National Center for Transgender Equality executive director Mara Keisling appeared on Melissa Harris-Perry’s show on MSNBC Sunday, lauding the Obama administration’s progress on LGBT issues but emphasizing there is more to be done in the president’s second term.
“His statements on same-sex marriage, of course, have had global resonance,” said Breen. For the second term, he mentions wanting to see immigration reform to allow same-sex couples to stay together, and possibly an LGBT cabinet member. He and Keisling also discuss the need for broad antidiscrimination legislation and the intersection of LGBT issues with other matters, such as foreign policy and health care. Watch below.
