Over the weekend at the Boston and Indianapolis Gay Pride Parades, staff, volunteers and supporters of the Barack Obama presidential campaign marched and participated in the events. On last week's conference call with LGBT media and bloggers, openly gay deputy campaign manager Steve Hildebrand said the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's campaign will have a "major presence" at some 60 pride events throughout the season.

Also on last week's conference call with LGBT media, it was announced that David Noble, former executive director of the National Stonewall Democrats and current director of public policy and government affairs at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, has been appointed as director of the LGBT vote for the campaign.
