Glee's Jane Lynch narrates Barack Obama video about fight for LGBT rights
Glee star and out-lesbian celebrity Jane Lynch has lent her voice to narrate a new campaign video for Barack Obama.
The five-minute video chronicles President Obama's involvement with and support of same-sex rights and queer American communities.
The retrospective survey includes everything from his repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell military policy (which he calls one of his most satisfying moments) and the signing of the Hate Crime Prevention Act to Obama becoming the first U.S. president to publicly endorse same-sex marriage.
There's a reference to Matthew Shepard, as well as Obama's It Gets Better video, and even Lady Gaga makes a brief appearance.
Lynch credits Obama with making "more significant advances for LGBT Americans than any other president who came before him."
The video has been released just prior to Pride Month, which takes place in the U.S. in June.
