New video from GetEqual calls on Obama to ‘evolve already’ on marriage equality

In this video released today, activist group GetEqual calls on President Barack Obama to “evolve already” on the issue of marriage quality.

“President Obama is holding an LGBT fundraiser in NYC, but has not yet publicly endorsed marriage equality. We’re offering him reasons, submitted via Twitter, why he should ‘evolve already’ and support marriage equality,” said GetEqual.

Obama is scheduled to attend an event in New York on Thursday evening at the Democratic National Committee’s Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Gala.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said on Thursday afternoon that the President plans to “mention” the pending marriage equality bill in the New York legislature during his remarks this evening, but won’t come out either for or against the legislation.
