President Obama Gives Props to Caitlyn Jenner

by at .

President Barack Obama has once again shown some love for Caitlyn Jenner.

Soon after Caitlyn made her debut in Vanity Fair, Obama Tweeted that it takes "courage" for one to share her story as Jenner has chosen to do.

Then, last night, during a taping of Logo’s Trailblazer Honors in New York City, Obama appeared via video and delivered a speech about the state of LGBT equality.

"When this network aired its first show, gay marriage was a political wedge issue used to divide us. Today the majority of Americans live in states where they can get married, no matter who they love," Obama said, adding:

"Today ‘Don't Ask Don't Tell' is history. We passed the hate crime law that bears Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr.'s name.

"And all you have to do is look at this month's cover of Vanity Fair to see how America is more accepting of people for who they truly are."

The President continued:

"We still have plenty of work to do together, but tonight is a reminder that when everybody does their part, when every voice is heard, change is not just possible - change is inevitable.

"So here's to ten extraordinary years, and all the years to come. Let's keep standing together to make sure every American is treated with dignity and respect they deserve."

This Trailblazer Honors special will air on Saturday, June 27 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Logo. It will also feature Miley Cyrus sending along a video message.
