`Gay activists freeing soul of American people’

In May, US Vice President had expressed his support for gay marriage before President Barack Obama did.



Washington: US Vice President Joe Biden has thanked gay rights advocates for not just pushing forward their civil rights, but also the ‘civil rights of every straight American’.

“You are freeing the soul of the American people,” Biden said during a stop in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

According to Politico, Biden also spoke on the LGBT issues during his campaign speech at the Pilgrim Monument and Museum, which is located in a prominent gay community in Cape Cod.

“If I had to use one adjective to describe this community it’d be courage,” Biden said, adding: “You have summoned the courage to speak out, to come out. We owe you.”

In May, Biden had expressed his support for gay marriage before President Barack Obama did, creating an uncomfortable moment for the White House, the report said.
