President Obama Is The First President To Feature On The Cover Of An LGBT Magazine

President Barack Obama is the first president to feature on the cover of an LGBT magazine.  He will feature on the cover of Out magazine's "Out 100" issue as the publication's Ally of the Year. The president's role in supporting and ensuring the legalization of same-sex marriage earned him his appearance on the magazine.


During the interview with the magazine...

President Obama talked about a several topics, including the first openly gay person he knew (a professor at Occidental), how Malia and Sasha and their generation view LGBT people (no tolerance for intolerance), and about Kentucky clerk Kim Davis and religious freedom (nobody is above the rule of law).

The editors of 'Out' wrote in a post Tuesday:

"The 44th President of the United States is our Ally of the Year — a president who came to office on a wave of euphoria, appeared to lose momentum halfway through, and has since rallied, helping us secure marriage equality, among other landmark initiatives that are transforming our place in America."

The magazine says this edition will hit the newstands by next week.
