Tracy Baim

As a state senate candidate in Illinois in 1996, Barack Obama said he favored gay marriage. As president, he is opposed to gay marriage but favors civil unions. In her new book, veteran Chicago reporter Tracy Baim takes an in-depth look at Obama’s record on LGBTQ issues through his state and federal elections and terms in office, including his first year and a half as president. Obama and the Gays includes interviews with Obama’s Chicago and national gay supporters and contributions by prominent gay activists, bloggers, and reporters, including Lisa Keen, Chuck Colbert, John D’Emilio, and Pam Spaulding.
