Obama and the Gays: A Political Marriage is a brand new book by veteran Chicago-based journalist Tracy Baim, the publisher and editor of Windy City Times. The book traces President Barack Obama's evolving and sometimes complicated relationship with the LGBT community and frames what the Obama Administration has and has not accomplished on these issues.
Obama and the Gays is the first book to address Obama’s relationship with the LGBT community. The book features key interviews with LGBT movement leaders and contributions by leading gay journalists, bloggers and activists. I'm delighted to be included among the contributors. Look for my analysis on the Obama Administration's decision to poll straight servicemembers and their families on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell". I initially feared this would be dated by the book's publication but as we can see that is not the case.
Obama and the Gays: A Political Marriage is available via print on demand through Amazon.com and e-book readers. It is also available at CreateSpace. More news on the book in weeks to come and thanks so much to Tracy Baim for the opportunity.
