Kim Kardashian Supports President Obama Same Sex Marriage

Wow… I just heard that President Obama has officially announced that he supports gay marriage!! This is such a huge step forward in our country’s fight for civil rights and I hope that today this will give hope to so many young people across the country.

We’ve never had a president so supportive of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and today I am proud to be an American!! I’m so happy that our country is making history and moving forward. No more living in the past!

An Amazing Dinner at The White House

May 2, 2010 / 31 Comments

I came to the White House Correspondents dinner as a guest of Fox News
Channel and Greta Van Susteren. Greta, her husband and I had so much
fun! What a spectacular event! I decided to go last minute and had nothing to wear, so my mom
suggested I try on her Valentino gown she bought in Paris in 1984. She
wore it to a black tie event back then and always saved it! She didn’t
think it would fit but it fit like a glove! It was perfect! She started
to cry, she’s always so emotional! LOL

The event was just so amazing! I saw everyone from Larry King, Demi Lovato, Michelle Pfeiffer, the Jonas Brothers, and of course my new love Justin Bieber! LOL

It was my dream to see first Lady Michelle Obama, and I saw her and she
is stunning! The President gave a hysterical speech. The night was a
blast!

Moving in the Right Direction

October 13, 2009 / 137 Comments

We like to consider our nation one that promotes equality. But isn’t
that a little hypocritical considering there are so many people in this
country who are denied the most basic civil rights? It shouldn’t matter
if you are straight, gay, bisexual, black, white, rich, poor… every citizen
deserves to be treated as an equal.

My good friend Joe Francis visited Washington DC this weekend to take part in the National Equality March
and marched with thousands of gay rights activists all standing up for
gay rights and rallying to demand that President Obama stand by what he
promised this weekend at the Human Rights Campaign.

I think what President Obama has said he will do to move gay
rights forward is such a huge step in the right direction. It is a
breath of fresh air to see a leader be so open minded, modern and
understanding of people of all lifestyles. I just hope he stands by his
word. Equal rights for everyone!!!!!

Freedom is Precious

June 25, 2009 / 99 Comments

We sometimes forget how lucky we are to live in a democracy and I think
we often take our freedoms for granted. Unfortunately, not all
countries run like ours, and not all people have the freedom to say
what they think, wear what they want, choose their religion. I don’t
tend to get into politics that much and I’m a total workaholic, so I’m
always busy, but I try to keep up on the news (Twitter helps!) and I
even received an e-mail from an Iranian-American fan who wanted to
spread awareness of what’s going on in Iran. As an Armenian-American, I
definitely feel this is something that should be addressed.

If
you’ve seen any of the shocking videos online of the police violence
against the protesters (I’ve seen pics but I can’t bring myself to
watch the videos) you’ve seen how the Iranian people are protesting for
what they believe in, fighting for their freedoms and being brutally
punished and attacked for it by police. This kind of violence against
innocent civilians is sickening. President Obama said he was appalled
by what was going on and honestly, how can you not be?! Shima, my fan
who e-mailed me, said that the Iranian government is bringing in
officers from outside of Iran to silence the protesters because Iran’s
own guards are refusing to hurt their own people. I admire these
Iranian guards for standing up for themselves, and I admire the Iranian
people for fighting for their freedoms.

Some people think we
shouldn’t meddle with other country’s politics, but I don’t think it’s
about enforcing our own beliefs on them, it’s about helping people
fight for what they want for their own country. In our country protests
and demonstrations happen everyday, peacefully. We are ssooo lucky to
have the right to speak up for ourselves and for what we believe in. I
just hope the people or Iran will some day soon have the right to do
the same.
