Obama: Outlawing LGBT Discrimination 'on the Right Side of History'

President Obama signs an Executive Order prohibiting federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

"We've got an obligation to make sure that the country we love remains a place where no matter who you are, or what you look like, or where you come from, or how you started out, or what your last name is, or who you love — no matter what, you can make it in this country.

"That's the story of America. That's the story of this movement. I want to thank all of you for doing your part. We've got a long way to go, but I hope as everybody looks around this room, you are reminded of the extraordinary progress that we have made not just in our lifetimes, but in the last five years. In the last two years. In the last one year. We're on the right side of history. "
