In an interview with Logo from the
Democratic National Convention (DNC), House Democratic Leader Nancy
Pelosi cheered the party's acceptance of LGBT rights.
Democrats attending the DNC ratified
party's most LGBT-inclusive platform in its history and welcomed
the first openly transgender person to speak at a major party
McBride to DNC delegates: "I am a proud transgender American.”)
“Let me just say about myself, that
I'm so happy that the world has finally caught up with San Francisco,
Pelosi, whose district includes San Francisco.
“It's pretty exciting to see
everybody else coming along now as part of it, but the Democratic
party has always been well positioned and disposed to respecting all
people in our society.”
“My view is that what the community
did in the fight against HIV and AIDS, that masterful mobilization in
the country, really has taken us down a path to where now we have
marriage equality. I think that that hastened the approach. So, the
community has not only acted on its own behalf and made America more
American, it's helped other groups by giving an example of how to get
the job done,” she added.
