So, President Obama (OK, only ‘elect’ for the time being…), speaking from Chicago on hearing that he’d done it, got it in the bag, could move into the big white house, was speaking about who’d come out to vote and talked about ‘rich and poor, black and white, straight and gay’. Yes, he said ‘gay’. In the very first speech! Now, that’s got to be good.
Even Madonna didn’t namecheck the gays in ‘Vogue’ (‘…if you’re black or white, if you’re a boy or a girl’) when she’d stolen the whole bloody thing from the gays. What’s that line about ‘you had me at hello’?
