Just one more thing to add to their list of great achievements!!
On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal across the U.S., declaring that refusing to do so would violate the Constitution. Shortly after the high court’s landmark decision, the Obama administration celebrated by lighting the White House in rainbow colors.
Now, more than three years after that historic Obergefell v. Hodges ruling, former first lady Michelle Obama revealed that she and her daughter Malia, then 16, snuck out of the White House that night to join in on the fun happening outside their residence.
I am thankful that though I am one woman among four other men, I have never felt sexually threatened at work. However, I have been in a position at a job I had in the late 90s where I was threatened with sexual harassment by a guy I thought I was friends with. Thankfully nothing ever happened. It was merely words, but it could have.
First Lady Michelle Obama completely rocked a speech in New Hampshire about the information which has recently come to light regarding the Republican Party nominee. She is a passionate speech giver. She is an eloquent speech giver. I encourage you to watch this video, but you can skip forward to approximately the 24 minute mark unless, of course, you don’t mind listening to music that plays before the speech begins. ;o)
Well well well… I guess freedom of the press no longer counts for anything here.
WASHINGTON — Labor Department officials blocked a reporter from speaking with Labor Secretary Thomas Perez Monday because of what officials believed the reporter would ask the secretary about: LGBT workers’ rights.
Following an event with Perez and Michelle Obama on veteran hiring, Labor Department officials allowed all reporters present other than a BuzzFeed reporter to speak with Perez.
When asked about the decision, Labor Department spokesman Egan Reich said the BuzzFeed reporter was held outside the event because the department did not believe BuzzFeed would ask about veteran hiring.
BuzzFeed has been seeking information for more than a year about whether the Labor Department is enforcing a current executive order that bans federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sex to include banning discrimination on the basis of gender identity. Two weeks ago, Labor Department officials declined to make Perez available for an interview about the issue.
