Anyone who has read Barack Obama's autobiography, Dreams from my Father, knows that the 44th president of America had a unique and atypical background for a president. Today, courtesy of The New York Times, comes a fabulous new twist to the tale--his nanny duirng his brief time in Jakarta, Indonesia, was a gay man and transvestite. Norimitsu Onishi writes, "His nanny was an openly gay man who, in keeping with Indonesia’s relaxed attitudes toward homosexuality, carried on an affair with a local butcher, longtime residents said. The nanny later joined a group of transvestites called Fantastic Dolls, who, like the many transvestites who remain fixtures of Jakarta’s streetscape, entertained people by dancing and playing volleyball." Just another reason to hope that Obama is not as insensible to the urgency of LGBT equality as he sometimes seems.
