We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth. — President Obama (Inaugural Speech, 2013)

- Our President mentioned women’s equality, racial equality, and queer* equality all in one sentence, without caution, with full support, and echoing the need to remember and push forward. Stonewall was mentioned in a presidential speech, an inaugural speech. I am - Wow. Thank you, Mr. President, for remembering so many of us today. — Rebecca, creator of KNOWhomo.tumblr
