Thread: Trump admin. launches global effort to end criminalization of homosexuality

  1. #31
    The Trump administration has reportedly been rejecting requests from U.S. embassies to fly the Pride flag during LGBT Pride Month.

    U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil and Latvia were denied by the Trump State Department to fly the flag this month, according to NBC News, citing three American diplomats. The embassies have been allowed to display the flags in and around the area, however none have been approved to display the flag on flagpoles.
    The policy is a reversal from the Obama administration, who gave blanket permission to any embassy wanting to fly the Pride flag. Last Friday marked the first time since Trump took office that he formally recognized Pride Month.

    Delegate Eric Porterfield, who represents West Virginia's 27th district, has a history of anti-LGBT stances. But things came to a head last week during a House meeting over a proposed amendment to an anti-LGBT-discrimination bill.
    During the February 6 meeting Porterfield called the bill, which would include LGBT people as a protected class under the state's Human Rights Act, "bigoted," "intolerant" and "discriminatory."
    "The LGBT is the most socialist group in this country," he continued, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail. "They do not protect gays. There are many gays they persecute if they do not line up with their social ideology."
