Within moments of Donald Trump’s inauguration, the Trump Administration removed all mentions of LGBTQ people and issues from the White House website, and removed the Department of Labor’s (DOL) report on Advancing LGBTQ Workplace Rights from the website as well. Today, HRC called on President Trump to reinstate the pages immediately.
“Moments ago, President Trump pledged to serve all Americans, while simultaneously scrubbing every mention of LGBTQ people from the White House website. The Department of Labor’s crucial report on worker rights has also disappeared,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “If President Trump truly believes in uniting the country, now is the time to make clear whether he will be an ally to the LGBTQ community in our struggle for full equality. We are prepared to do whatever it takes to protect our community and our progress.”
