(HUFFINGTON POST) — WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has said for more than a year now that his position on same-sex marriage is “evolving,” a stance that has frustrated and perplexed the gay community given the president’s broad support for other gay rights issues.
Now House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a vocal proponent of same-sex marriage, is nudging Obama to come around on the issue already.
In a February cover story with The Advocate, a national gay and lesbian news magazine, Pelosi declined to give specifics on conversations she may have had with Obama on the issue. Instead, she said she has been focused on pressing the Democratic National Committee to fund efforts to reject state-level anti-marriage ballot measures. “There are more ways to get your voice heard than just speaking,” she said.
