President Obama was interrupted several times by GetEQUAL activists during a speech at a fundraiser for Senator Barbara Boxer in Los Angeles on Monday.
Activists shouted, "What about 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell?'" and "It's time for equality for all Americans."
At one point the President halted his speech to address the activists. He said, "Barbara and I are supportive of repealing 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'."
David John Fleck, Dan Fotou, Laura Kanter, Zoe Nicholson and Michelle Wright were eventually escorted out of the fundraiser by security.
The President committed to repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell during his campaign, and renewed that campaign promise during this year's State of the Union Address. He said, "This year, I will work with Congress and our military to finally repeal the law that denies gay Americans the right to serve the country they love because of who they are."
The LGBT community is concerned that Don't Ask Don't Tell will not be repealed this year, as rumors abound that Congress does not plan to do so.
"We made it clear our community will hold accountable our President for unkept promises," Michelle Wright said in a statement. "Denying LGBT service members and personnel the ability to serve their country is unfair."
GetEQUAL is an LGBT organization that helped orchestrate Lt. Dan Choi's protest last month, when he and another officer chained themselves to the White House gate in protest against Don't Ask Don't Tell.
