I'm a big fan of fantasy novels and King Arthur legends. One of the recurring storylines common in the genre is hunting the white stag - a metaphor for the hero seeking purity and justice. Of course, the white deer is elusive and rarely seen - let alone actually caught or killed.
With Barack Obama as our President, the LGBT community feels comfortable hunting the white stag as we fight for our own justice and nobility - employment nondiscrimination, hate crimes protections, ability to serve our country, and recognition of our relationships. While I often worry that some of these forays into the wild woods won't be fruitful, at least now we've actually seen the white deer.
