Written by

Let's finish this year with a victory in United-States: the repeal of Don't ask, don't tell and a possible dialogue on marriage equality.

Wednesday, President Barack Obama signed a bill who will allow gays and lesbians to serve in the military openly.

He said: “We are not a nation that says ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ We are a nation that says ‘out of many we are one".

A few hours after signing the legislation, he said he could open a dialogue on marriage equality in the U.S.

During a press conference , Obama told that his feelings on marriage equality are "constantly evolving," and that he was mainly supporting civil unions for gay and lesbian couples.

"But I recognize that from [the perspective of gay couples] it is not enough," he said. "And I think this is something that we're going to continue to debate and I personally am going to continue to wrestle with going forward."

See you next year for more news from all over the world, Merry christmas !!!
