Gautam Raghavan, a married gay Indian man, worked as Obama’s liaison to both the LGBT and Asian communities. He’s recently published a book of stories about his experience and other Asian staffers in the Obama White House. I love the photo at the end of this article with Mr. Raghavan, his husband, and his parents speaking to Obama in the Oval Office. I wish all Indian parents were as open and loving as Mr. Raghavan’s parents. Take note, Indian parents- this could also be you, and your successful gay or lesbian child!
I wish Mr. Trump was busy doing the same, reaching out and supporting diverse communities.
Here’s an article about Raghavan’s book.
