PHOTOS: Gay Moments From the DNC's First Day

Democrats not only passed the most LGBT-inclusive party platform ever, the convention's first day also had supportive mentions in primetime and a few places you probably missed.



The voices of LGBT people were heard directly from the podium during the Democratic National Convention, including Mary Kay Henry of the Service Employees International Union and Rep. Jared Polis of Colorado. (Watch video of Henry's jab at Mitt Romney and video of Polis talking about his family and the value of diversity.) DNC Treasurer Andrew Tobias also spoke, sharing a personal story of what it was like to grow up gay. (Watch the video.)
