President Obama Covers 'OUT100,' Talks Equality & More

President Obama takes the cover of Out magazine’s OUT100 issue as an ally, hero, and icon.

Here’s what the 54-year-old politician had to share:

On equality: “This really goes back to when I was a kid, because my mom instilled in me the strong belief that every person is of equal worth,” he explains to the magazine. “At the same time growing up as a black guy with a funny name, I was often reminded of exactly what it felt like to be on the outside. To Malia [Obama] and Sasha [Obama] and their friends, discrimination in any form against anyone doesn’t make sense. It doesn’t dawn on them that friends who are gay or friends’ parents who are same-sex couples should be treated differently than anyone else. The next generation is spurring change not just for future generations, but for my generation, too.”

On Kim Davis: “I am a man of faith and believe deeply in religious freedom, but at the end of the day, nobody is above the rule of law—especially someone who voluntarily takes an oath to uphold that law. That’s something we’ve got to respect.”

    Quick and easy – Slow and methodical.

    It’s easy to watch men harp “never will forget” and the all stars nobility “bold as gold” appeal to a better judge of character so that where “hope shines” tolerance forgives. It’s not all cracked up to be petting wooden ‘Eggnocchio’ either into the one basket, and so order the class genius with such encore and bravo it wills the salt of the earth people to love and understanding.

    Just for a change classic Neapolitan is for “better or worse” giving to grand gesture “high tea” enlightenment and “I’m not young enough to know everything” Ideals. Me profess too much as everybody is granted liberty of mistakes – if their learning from them. Commander in Chief, “cheers big ears” from us and as we say here “I’ve got to go see a man about a dog”.
