    This is all fine and dandy, but do we really need to be spending any taxpayer funds on this? There are quite a few able gay historians out there who've published several solid academic studies of various aspects of gay life, and there is a solid record of volunteerism in the gay community as well. I'll be looking closely at the details once announced, but really, there are MANY more worthy ways to use this money, not least of which simply banking and applying it against the deficit.

    I think it would be interesting to compare the amount of money you're talking about to the amounts of monies (yours, as in from your taxes) used to put bills forward to allow discrimination of gays on religious grounds etc. I wonder how many triple digits of millions that has cost you?

    Hopefully Obama will stop funding the execution of gays in Nigeria, Sudan and other countries.
