The Obama White House has announced that it will be holding LGBT “conferences” throughout the country in early 2012 so the public can “hear directly” from the administration on efforts to ensure the well-being, security, justice, and equality for LGBT Americans.”
But the only thin is that these “conferences” are really nothing more than LGBT campaign stop and WILL NOT focus on the really important issues such as DOMA, ENDA, and Same Sex Marriage .
