Hello world!

I wanted to examine public policies impacting gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender  Americans with an emphasis on civil rights, discrimination and hate crimes.  Although many Americans oppose extending civil liberties such as the right to marry towards GLBT citizens, public policy has recently shifted towards granting civil liberties and protections to GLBT people.   The Obama administration signed a hate crime bill last October extending protections to gay and transgender individuals.  Obama  also supports the inclusion of GLBT Americans in the Employment Non-discrimination Act, opposes a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, and advocates rescinding policies discriminating against GLBT people in the military.
