President Barack Obama

A forthcoming biography reveals former President Barack Obama considered "gayness" as an alternative to heterosexuality. The biography by David Garrow, "Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama," portrays Obama as an ideological college student who was willing to date men.

For years, rumors swirled that Obama was a closeted bisexual. The biography, which comes out on May 9, lays to rest some of the speculation surrounding Obama's pro-LGBT activism while in office.

via Daily Caller -- In a chapter about the former president’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close relationship Obama had with an openly gay assistant professor named Lawrence Goldyn.

“Three years later, Obama wrote somewhat elusively to his first intimate girlfriend that he had thought about and considered gayness, but ultimately had decided that a same-sex relationship would be less challenging and demanding than developing one with the opposite sex,” Garrow wrote.

Garrow is a Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer, and is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Washington Post. He considers Obama among his friends.

    Damn, can you keep this man's name out of your mouth? Why do you care so much?????? Do you hate yourself because you are lesbian and black? You are such a miserable individual always seeking to find fault in others and lurking in dark corners praying for others demise. Sad.

    So what if he is?

  • Anunnaki

    Chile How you found what the next post gone be, cause this ain't it...

  • Kelly Variste

    Well....He certainly wouldn't be the first as we all know that's how it goes down in Washington lol! And another thing now Ms Sandra you know you gon get it right? Cause you know Black Americans don't wanna see nothing but what they want to see about their first black president let it go girl lol! They would rather hear that about President Trump just because he's Donald Trump and wouldn't need any evidence at all lol! Btw love your blog you keep me rolling every time.?

  • Mbailey

    THANK God we live in the Internet era, where one can truly say if there are no receipts, then it didn't happen. Another he $aid/she $aid situation.

  • MsPam

    Others outlets are talking about the content of the book as well. Sandra could of mention what TMZ is trying to stir things up about Michelle being the only black woman he's ever dated. Up there asking Megan Goodman if he could of gotten in the WH with a white wife, she lied and said "yes" Black folks act this man is a saint! Jesus is not worried about Obama knocking him off of his throne.

  • Elevated Soul

    No surprise,I knew that dude was gay....

    No straight man would cape for that agenda, as hard as he did.Dude made the GAY AGENDA his MAIN AGENDA....

    Those of us that don't worship him can deal with HIS truth.Those that worship him will DENY the possibility as if their lives depend on it....

  • Phillybruh

    Who cares he took the black women to the white house not the white one and he couldn't have won with the white women on his arm. No way no how, wasn't going to happen!

  • Phillybruh

    Not really, the supreme court kinda did that. I think his main agenda was healthcare.

  • DJ

    Worry about your TRUTH and not "d" riding for a self-loathing lesbian, (SR), and you'd be surprise how things will open up for you.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    So what, people are fluid as humans go! And, in Washington, we know they've been swinging both ways since the beginning! Let us not forget about the Boys Town scandal in the 80's or all the congressmen that prefer boys over the usual, h oo kers, ok! Whether this man is gay or bi or have sampled and enjoyed a spectrum of relationships is nothing big!

    I am a staunch critic of Mr. Obama, especially for his foreign policy, but this is ridiculous to see his name called every single day because of what Trump is or isn't! Ya'll making him look better and better with each new day!

    He's moving forward, and his detractors are trapped in a closet as pure haters! No other former president has received this kind of bashing, not after allowing AIDS to become pandemic, C R A C K infiltrate our cities, METH, or H, or pill mills to flourish, human trafficking to implode us, corporate takeovers that built monopolies, wars strictly for profit, war contracts, Cheny nem, NAFTA, unprecedented US job loss, recent college graduates, jobless or underemployed, Wall Street - Banks and US Automakers much needed bailout, a housing crisis scam "The Big Short' film, but Barack Obama ruined this country, OK!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    "...he had thought about and considered gayness, but ultimately had decided that a same-sex relationship would be less challenging and demanding than developing one with the opposite sex,”
    ============
    But... I thought gayness is just an inborn condition and that a person can't "choose" if they want to be gay or straight. Isn't that what they tell us?

  • jazzysmith12

    I believe Obama was chosen by deamons one being ga!y daemon Asmodai/Asmodeus

  • Quitedeliteful

    Rumors have swirled for a long time about Obama being on the down low - double the fun, I guess.. If those rumors turn out to be true I'm good with it as long as he is taking care of his family...

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Thank you! Some ppl u just wanna slap

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    This still don't take away from the fact that 45 is a loser. #obamaallday

  • Itzgoingdown

    He flat out lied to blacks. He said he didn't support Gay Marriage and then after he was elected he became the champion and defender of all things gay..... gay, transgender, cisgender ect. 50 year old men don’t all of a sudden become "elighted' on sexuality. FOH w that BS. The Niggah lied. End of story.

    He also lied to poor black teens trapped in horrible ghetto schools with his "Hope and Change"BS. I know exactly what his plans were for Gays, Illegals and White Liberals causes. I have yet to figure out what his plans were for Black folks. The truth is he's weak, had NO PLAN for blacks and just followed the White Liberal Elitist agenda for Blacks (Keep them feed and dumb with a roof over their head so they can go work in the fields. (Correction, i mean vote.....Democrat.) Can someone please tell me Obama's (the 20 YEAR BLACK COMMUNITY ORGANIZER) plan for blacks and the ACADEMIC and ECONOMIC progress blacks made under Obama? I'm a liitle slow..... Thanks.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    They're in denial. The rumors have been swirling for years. Google the picture of him and his side piece, Reggie Love, walking on the beach.

  • jazzysmith12

    The Most High is Holy.He has abandoned Judah (black people) as a whole.This is one of the reasons--g!ay.We don't live or worship like our ancestors did.Our time is short.

  • Carrington

    "lays to rest some of the speculation surrounding Obama’s pro-LGBT activism while in office"... didn't Obama's position on "gayness" change over time? Didn't he initially say that marriage was between a man and a woman and then change his mind after pressure?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I knew "they" would wait until after he left office to expose his gay lifestyle. I also think he's going to come out of the closet soon.

  • Lucy

    Please stop!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Obama's former advisor David Axelrod wrote a book admitting Obama intentionally lied about his position on gay marriage. I wrote a post about the book, but many of you choose to ignore the truth.

  • Lucy

    Exactly. People refuse to leave this man alone.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Lol my POTUS left a lasting impression on those who hate him the most lol.

  • Sherry Dauphine

    NO!

  • Chocolategyrl

    And if he is who cares. I still would have voted for him. And trump is still the worst illegitimate theif playing wannabe president who will NEVER NEVER be half the man Obama is was and always will be.

  • AcutallyReally

    Yes, sir he did say that marriage is between a man and a woman. Actually there has been speculation about his sexuality since the '08 election. Nobody believed the stories but people were saying back then he'd had gay relationships.

  • shun king

    Pretty sure he has been penetrated by those whites he love so much

  • Lucy

    Rooting for the downfall of another black person is insane to me. He has a family and children. If you don't like his politics then we can talk about that, but his personal life is just that, personal.

  • We Can Do This

    That's how they get in!

  • A D N

    Wow, the stones thrown at Obama these last few days, and he's not even the president. I guess someone is leaking these stories for distraction lol. But I still don't care, "if (Obama) shoots someone down in the street", he and Michelle will have my support lol.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Shoot, I am assisting in hiding the gun and THEY AIN'T DO NOTHING is the story I am sticking to!!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Garrow reveals a close relationship Obama had with an openly gay assistant professor

    So being a good friend to a gay person means you are gay. Guess my older sons are gay, since they have a close relationship with their brother and are cool with his friends.

    GTFOH!!!!

  • A D N

    Is he really gay SR or are you bashing him? I'm sincerely asking because a lot of posts tend to discredit his presidency and personal lives and we supporters can't get passed the bashing (because you make it so difficult) to hear the truth...if this is truthful.

  • Thismessismessy

    8 years later 70 to 80% of black kids STILL go to the WORST schools in their city and state.

    All of our best schools are in the hood. It's reverse here

  • A D N

    ok. Going right now.

  • We Can Do This

    This is probably the reason for the political push on gay rights, they have a steamy sex tape on him...

  • Phillybruh

    I'm certain some feeble minded black folks are going to believe this. In their mind every black man that is not a super thug is gay anyway so it doesn't really matter.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Bullshiit!!!!!!!!! Yeap that's what I got from this post! Listen I know a lot of people don't respect Obama nor care for what he did within excepting and allowing same s*x marriage BUT I refuse to believe that he had h*mo tendencies. Public Announcement to all, all black men are not g*y or on the down-low...

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    When Obama ran for reelection, Reggie Love mysteriously resigned from his position at the White House because gay photos leaked of Reggie servicing a Caucasian man. Reggie returned to his job at the White House after Obama won reelection.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Even in gentrified cities these white liberals "aint" sending their kids to school with black baby mama kids (unless its like only 10 to 20% black baby mama kids). White liberals are very conservative when it comes to their kids education and their own personal money.

  • klwbaby

    I guess since someone said it, then we should believe it?? I've heard that a certain person was asking for a girl's info like her home cell number, her address and the makemodel of her car.....

  • Guess Who

    YEAH OK.

    lawds!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Remember how Obama spent millions in taxpayer dollars to fly illegal aliens to every state to influence the election? That money could've gone to improving school systems in urban areas.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    hhmm

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I see you skipped right over the part where he told an ex-girlfriend he considered gayness.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Sandy, Pres. Obama has taken about as much penis as you have in the last 2 or more years....and we are NOT counting strap ons.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    How am I bashing him when I'm gay myself? Telling the truth is not bashing.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Nope, I read all of it, as you have a penchant for editing stuff.

    Is this the same one he ain't bother to marry? If so, she just mad that she ain't getting "The D" and Michelle is.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    What girl?

  • We Can Do This

    Oh my...

  • We Can Do This

    And thanks, going to look this up.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    and we're not counting strap ons..... LOL!!!! That was a good one.

  • Branch Davidian

    We only count the strap ons for Hillary....and Huma

    Well if you believe all the rumors, Michelle is the one GIVING "The D"

    CHILE!! SMDH

  • Itzgoingdown

    Is Reggie Love Gay? Didnt know that...... if thats true it pretty much confirms Obama's in the closet

  • Kelly Variste

    Hey honey nice to meet you and I'm totally aware of what you speak of I've been awake for years about this man so it's no surprise to me this man's whole entire image has been a pure fabrication total fiction from the start but unfortunately we as black Americans have been taught to just accept anything at face value simply because it's wrapped in an ideal package so it most be ok that's why we continue to be at the bottom and will never overcome very sad commentary indeed.

  • ??Tommys_Female_Doppelganger??

    Reggie Love left the White House in 2011 and never returned.. He finished his degree and took a job elsewhere.. At least know what you're talking about if you're gonna be hating your asss off like you are right now.. Just because you're as gay as a ship full of sailors doesn't mean Obama is... I think I'll screenshot this and send it to Mr. Love so he can sue you for defamation... You ignorant biitch!!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    He probably did experiment in college. Many do. I did not but I had girls indirectly hit on me.
    No biggie, if he did.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    He is not weak in terms of accomplishing what he WANTED to accomplish.
    Gays. Illegals. Immigrants. Health Care Reform.
    People ASSUMED because he was Black , he would be a messiah.

    SPEAK! this chick has some sort of gay issues as she is always so focussed on it and trans people usually in a disparaging way. I am not and have never been an Obama fan but this s h y t is ridiculous.

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm just glad he's no longer the President. I get the feeling that Obama has a lot of skeletons in his closet. Now that he's no longer protected by his position and the liberal media...the truth is coming out.

  • dontgetblocked

    Obama's lie is why Hillary lost the election. Black people voted for Obama again in 2012 because he was black. They were pissed about his gay stance but his half-blackness won them over. Then he kept on with the gay legislation. Hillary promised more of the same...and she LOST!

  • samuel severino

    Only a matter of time before he is officially out of the closet.
    And that his long term affair w Reggie Love is fully exposed instead of just whispered about in the offices of D.C.

  • samuel severino

    Wrong. He is a member of the DLC in Chi-Town which stood for Downlow Club, he had multiple boyfriends killed that came forward before he was elected and he experimented in college.
    Just a few simple searches will prove that. Dig deeper and you will find people who went on record.

  • samuel severino

    Thank you. Huma was Hillary's long time lover and her relationship w Weiner was a convenient coverup.
    Now that Huma is getting millions for a book deal while facing potential imprisonment she is singing like a canary because her computer held tons of dirt HRC did for years.

  • samuel severino

    Just because you refuse to believe it doesn't mean it is not true.
    And sometimes our idols are not what they seem and they do let us down.

  • samuel severino

    Exactly.

  • samuel severino

    Reggie WOULD NOT SUE because this is an issue that he does not want to resurface.

    When you sue you have to prove that the information is not true and Reggie would not want to lie under oath or have people subpoenaed.

  • samuel severino

    I DARE YOU TO SCREENSHOT IT. Matter of fact send it to his Twitter. Watch how fast your screenshot gets deleted.

  • samuel severino

    Yes yes and yes. He spent more time alone w Barack than Michelle did.

  • samuel severino

    No one is rooting for the downfall of a Black Man. Obama has been dogged w these issues since he first blew up. Now that he is out of office less people are worried about retribution.

  • samuel severino

    It is widely acknowledged and accepted that J. Edgar Hoover was a cross dresser but it came out way after he was out of office when the public didn't really care anymore.
    Just like the people knew he was cross dressing and didn't say anything, the same is going to happen to Barack years and years after he left office when it won't really matter then.

  • Calikush

    ????

  • ??Tommys_Female_Doppelganger??

    How do you know he has something going on with Obama or did?? DO you and Sandra have proof of that?? IF you don't your running your ignorant asss mouths about something you know nothing about... I don't doubt the mans sexuality.. I am talking about the slander of him and Obama being lovers.. Pay attention..

  • ??Tommys_Female_Doppelganger??

    Shut the hell up - you stupid piece crap.. You know less about who this man is sleeping with than Sandra's dyke asss does.. FOH!! Stop obsessing over who a gay male is sleeping with - you closet fudgepacking bastard!! I think you want him and Obama for yourself...

  • Elevated Soul

    Thank you CaliKush!.....I can tell you are a souljah,so you get it!

    Yeah those photos of him and his "love" Reggie Love, tell the tale.Obama could put on a dress and wig and his worshipers,would say it's not real.

  • Tea??

    Sounds like an episode of scandal ?

  • CCW47

    It is really isn't unfounded. He is the one that has been doing the most for the gay community. What president that is married with kids approve that men that are cross dressing and still have a penis use the ladies restroom and put our children in harms way and made it an law for public schools and should I go on and on.

  • InterracialMix

    Even anti Obama people can see it. That's good. It won't matter though. Sandra will continue.

  • InterracialMix

    You would say something like that about a black person. Were you people created by the devil to keep the scales of good and evil on an even keel?

  • interestingconcept1

    LOL! "gayness", what the f is "gayness", So what? I do believe the whispering I heard when about it, but so what? Cocaine loving, weed smoking, white woman loving, gayness, he was still the POTUS for 8 YEARS!

  • interestingconcept1

    So what! You gay too Sandra, why does any of this matter? If Reggie left, he was right to do so. Why should a person's sexuality stop them for being a community leader. You are so warped.
