The Democratic National Committee (DNC) celebrated eight years of LGBT progress in the United States with a video showcasing all the recent wins and struggles for the community.

Accomplishments made under President Barack Obama’s time in office are featured. These include the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and signing the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. The video also revisits the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage across the country.

“For decades the LGBT community has fought for equal rights. As others try to slow down progress remember…we will keep fighting,” the video reads in between clips of monumental LGBT moments.
