| by

President Obama has created a new campaign ad focusing on LGBT issues. Narrated by 'Glee' star Jane Lynch, the five minute long ad expresses Obama's strong opinions about gay marriage and gay rights. 

The ad highlights what the Obama administration has done thus far to bring equal rights to the gay and lesbian community. He also clearly states that he believes same-sex marriage should be legal. 

It aims to build a stronger support for his campaign before the elections in November, but it also expresses part of Obama's values. He states, "it's not just a matter of head. It's a matter of heart. It's who I am." 

He also touches on the devastating acts of bullying against gays and lesbians, emphasizing that these incidents along with other pushed him to be passionate about gay rights issues.
