Actor Kal Penn says his buddy’s boyfriend inspires Obama support

Actor Kal Penn is on the campaign trail pushing for President Obama’s reelection and said his buddy Kevin’s boyfriend is part of what inspires him to do so.

Kal spent two years as Obama’s liaison to young Americans and repeatedly cited repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” as reason to rile up that important demographic during his speech last night at the DNC.

“I’m volunteering again now because my friend Matt got a job at a Detroit car company that still exists, and Lauren can get the prescription she needs,” Penn told the crowd. “I’m volunteering because Josiah is back from Iraq, Chris is finishing college on the GI Bill, and three weeks ago, my buddy Kevin’s boyfriend was able to watch him graduate from Marine Corps training. That’s change! And we can’t turn back now.”
