Republican Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin on June 5 hosted a Pride Month reception in Richmond. A public schedule that Youngkin’s office released noted the event took place at the Executive Mansion in Richmond, and was “closed press.” The advisory also notes Youngkin hosted members of his LGBTQ+ Advisory Board and Log Cabin Republicans, and described the event as a “community reception.” Youngkin in previous years has hosted Pride Month receptions, even though Equality Virginia and other advocacy groups have criticized him for supporting anti-LGBTQ bills.

The Republican governor in March signed a bill that codified marriage equality in Virginia. Youngkin last month vetoed a measure that would have expanded the definition of bullying in the state.

Youngkin’s spokesperson has yet to respond to the Washington Blade’s request for comment about the June 5 reception. The post Glenn Youngkin hosts Pride Month reception appeared first on Washington Blade: LGBTQ News, Politics, LGBTQ Rights, Gay News.
