The End Of The Golden Age Of Gay Rights

Blogger Richard Rothstein:

America enters a new world on this day. But a golden age of gay
rights has died a quick death after a very short life. And as a gay
American I am once again faced with an almost daily decision: which mask do I
don as I head out into the heterosexual world?

As expected, Obama's base swept him into the White House while sweeping away gay rights, banning gay marriage in Arizona, Florida and California. The
question now becomes who will Obama ask for compromise? Will he honor the
wishes of his core African-American and Christian base or will he deliver on his
promise of full equality for all Americans?
