President Obama Gets Slew of Celebrity Support on His Gay Rights Stance
Here’s a list of celebrities who support Obama on his stance for gay rights and marriage.
JayZ- “I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back,” Jay-Z said, referencing the fact that same-sex marriage is not recognized nationwide. “What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple.”
