    The Log Cabin Republicans endorsed President Trump's 2020 reelection bid on Friday, nearly four years after the conservative LGBT organization declined to endorse then-candidate Trump in 2016. The group said its national board of directors voted to endorse Trump after consulting with its chapters across the country. Log Cabin Republicans Chairman Robert Kabel and Vice Chairwoman Jill Homan argued in a Washington Post op-ed on Friday that Trump has helped remove LGBTQ rights as a wedge issue in the GOP, citing his administration's policies on ending the spread of HIV/AIDS as well as his push to get other countries to...

    Sen. Cory Booker argued during the Democrat presidential debate on Wednesday that Americans need to talk more about transgender people. “We do not talk enough about trans-Americans, especially African American trans-Americans, and even incredibly high rates of murder right now,” he said. He compared the transgender rights struggles to the civil rights of black Americans, recalling a time when they were lynched in America. Booker also said that up to 30 percent of LGBT schoolchildren were afraid to go to school. He then argued that Democrats needed to do more than just support the Equality Act proposed in Congress. “We...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., June 4, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – U.S. President Donald Trump has signalled that he believes the month of June is dedicated to homosexual rights and asked the world to “stand with” same-sex attracted people in countries where homosexual conduct is illegal. In tweets he published on Friday, May 31, Trump also recalled that his administration is working for homosexual rights worldwide. “As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that...

    President Donald Trump delivers remarks at the 2019 National Prayer Breakfast. | (Photo: YouTube)For the first two years of his administration, President Trump failed to acknowledge June as the official pride month of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. But this year, one day before the start of LGBT Pride, the President tweeted the following:“As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals...

    Donald Trump has been called the most anti-LGBT president in our history. Yet he just became the first Republican president to celebrate LGBT pride month, also calling for the decriminalization of homosexuality worldwide. Does this indicate a shift in perspectives? Not according to gay journalist Michelangelo SignorileIn an article for the Daily Beast, he claimed that, “President Trump’s Anti-LGBT Agenda Is Louder Than His Pride Message.”Signorile wrote that, “On Friday, President Trump tweeted a message in support of Pride month, which was breathtakingly disingenuous given his administration’s systematic assault on LGBT rights.”Indeed, he claimed, “Trump’s celebration of Pride is...

    President Donald Trump tweeted Friday in celebration of LGBT Pride Month, which begins in June, and repeated his administration’s call for the international community to decriminalize homosexuality in countries where it is illegal. Trump has frequently been attacked by LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) activists on the left, particularly for his administration’s policies on transgenderism. Trump has barred transgender individuals from serving in the military, and reversed Barack Obama’s policies encouraging public schools to provide for transgender bathrooms. His administration also recently insisted on sticking to a definition of sexual discrimination that refers to biological sex. More broadly, however,...

    Democrats love to portray themselves as the party of women. The Democrats.org website proclaims proudly, “We are committed to ensuring full equality for women.” Yet this past week, House Democrats voted unanimously to, appropriating a phrase from Joe Biden, put women back in chains. Not as slaves, but in competitive sports, giving them second class stature by tilting the playing field so far askew that most women will fall off the field and be unable to compete fairly in sports. The US House of Representatives passed the Equality Act, “which would require schools to include male athletes who identify as...

    <p>In the south, it has been traditional for a young lady (debutante or “female beginner”) of high status to “come out” into adulthood. It’s a formal rite of passage into society of an educated, wealthy, sophisticated young lady now ready for the privileges and responsibilities of adulthood. It is a recognition of her availability of being a wife and mother—in that order. This coming out takes place at a ball and elegant dinner. During the evening, the debutante displays her ability to walk, sit, dance, and eat without tripping over her gown or dropping a croissant down the front of her dress.</p>

    When Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten, arrived at Pryor’s residence, nearly two dozen guests greeted the couple with handshakes and hugs, eager to be a part of the conversation. The meeting with Buttigieg––facilitated by Harrison Guy, co-chair of Mayor Sylvester Turner’s LGBTQ Advisory Board––was an extension of Black Like Us, an annual University of Houston Black History Month event. Members of the discussion panel were all black religious leaders or black LGBTQ persons of faith. *** Buttigieg, an Episcopalian, often shares his religious beliefs while campaigning. He has said that his South Bend church embraced his identity and even married...

    Pete Buttigieg is many things. At just 37, he is the mayor of South Bend, Indiana. He is a military veteran and a deeply religious gay man who is married but also enjoys sandwiches from (anti-same-sex marriage) Chick-fil-A. He is a Harvard-educated Rhodes scholar who speaks eight languages. He is the first ever millennial candidate for president and, so far, the only Democratic hopeful to appear on the "Fox News Sunday" show. "I'm all of those things," said Buttigieg -- pronounced "Boot-edge-edge" -- in an interview with the New York Post. "I try not to have any kind of attribute...

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Democrat Pete Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, says he’s forming an exploratory committee for a 2020 presidential bid. “The reality is there’s no going back, and there’s no such thing as ‘again’ in the real world. We can’t look for greatness in the past,” Buttigieg says in a video that includes before-and-after footage of South Bend, a Rust Belt city once described as “dying.” “Right now our country needs a fresh start,” he says.

    Democrat hate speech targeting deplorables has always worked -- on their own voters. Libeling Republicans as racist, homophobic morons has kept Democrat voters in line. President Trump laughs at their insults, and just gets stronger. Suddenly, one more Trump success. The Democrat line is breaking. Our minorities are breaking free. President Trump’s off the charts achievements on jobs and security are improving the lives of every single Democrat identity voting bloc. A small, but increasingly significant number are noticing. With his MAGA gains on the economy and foreign affairs, President Trump is slowly chipping away at the Democrat Party’s foundations....

    President Donald Trump's relationship with the LGBT community is complicated. During last year's election Trump positioned himself as a pro-LGBT Republican. On the campaign trail Trump promised he'd be "better for the gays" than his 2016 election opponent Hillary Clinton. The president even made history by mentioning LGBT issues during his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. But since Trump took office many voices in the community say their rights and livelihood have come under fire. "We are at war," Ken Kidd, an organizer with direct action group Rise and Resist, tells AOL.com. "We are under...

    In a pretty clear message to liberal LGBT activists who seem to think Donald Trump will revoke gay Americans’ rights and start stoning queer people to death in the streets, the White House on Tuesday released a statement Tuesday saying the 45th president will uphold an Obama-era executive order that protects LGBTQ individuals who work for federal contractors from workplace discrimination. Here’s the brief statement in full, as posted on whitehouse.gov:

    Donald Trump said he is “fine with” same-sex marriage but offered few specifics about his plans for the first 100 days of his administration during his first television interview since becoming the president-elect. In an extensive interview with CBS’s Leslie Stahl broadcast Sunday night on "60 Minutes," Trump sought to ease the anxieties of LGBTQ Americans that a new conservative Supreme Court majority might overturn last year’s decision legalizing same-sex marriage. Ducking a question about his personal view on the issue, which he dismissed as “irrelevant,” Trump asserted, bluntly, “it’s done.” “These cases have gone to the Supreme Court. They’ve...

"We, as Log Cabin Republicans of Miami, we're Americans first, we're Republicans second, and we happen to be gay or allies of the LGBT community. American national security is our government's first and foremost responsibility, then the economy - those two issues really are paramount to any American," Miami chapter president Vincent Foster told the Washington Examiner on Monday evening.

    Hillary Clinton addressed a crowd of mostly LGBT people at a rally at Wilton Manors, Florida, where she promised further LGBT-friendly reforms. During her speech, Clinton hit upon several hot button issues affecting gay people – including gun reform, following the Orlando gay club attack. “We are going to keep guns from falling into the wrong hands so that what happened in Orlando can never happen again,” the Democrat presidential nominee said. She brought up her rival, Republican nominee Donald Trump, saying he would reverse the progress LGBT rights have made in the US over the last few years. Trump...

The posters resemble colored versions of the black and white prints that were spotted in Hollywood, Los Angeles, last month, and appear to be the doing of the “Art Wing Conspiracy” group, who displayed their poster design at Lucian Wintrich’s pro-Trump art show, #DaddyWillSaveUs, last Saturday.
