At a campaign fundraiser this weekend, Vice President Joe Biden thanked LGBT activists in Provincetown, Massachusetts for “freeing the soul of the American people” by advancing not just LGBT equality but also the “civil rights of every straight American.” He added: “Many of you have advanced civil rights at great expense. If I had to use one adjective to describe this community, it’d be courage. You have summoned the courage to speak out, to come out. We owe you.”
