Newsweek Obama First Gay President
Newsweek Obama First Gay President, Take that, Time magazine! The latest issue of Newsweek magazine lionizes President Obama with the headline: “The First Gay President.” The president is shown with a rainbow halo around his head — a multicolored symbol meant to underscore his beatification by the gay-rights movement.
The cover arrives on newsstands and supermarket checkout stands today, less than a week after Obama announced his support for same-sex marriages. In an interview with ABC, Obama discussed how an evolution in his thought processes — including the fact that his young daughters have several schoolmates with same-sex parents — brought him to this new position.
The Newsweek cover story by writer Andrew Sullivan delves into this “evolution” and compares Obama’s experience as a biracial American to the gay experience in America.
