President Biden signs executive order for LGBTQ+ community

Reading now: 284

President Joe Biden issued an executive order Wednesday to counter what he called discriminatory legislative attacks on the LGBTQ+ community by Republican-controlled states.

The order, for example, takes aim at “conversion therapy” – the discredited practice that tries to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity – while supporting gender-affirming surgery and expanding foster care protections for gay and transgender parents and children.

Hinder anti-LGBTQ+ laws The order, which will tap into money allocated to federal agencies rather than require additional funding, is meant to hinder more than 300 anti-LGBTQ+ laws that have been introduced at the state level during the past 12 months, Biden said during signing at The White House, which was televised live.

The gathering is part of the Biden administration’s recognition of LGBTQ+ Pride Month. “All of you in this room know better than anyone that these attacks are real and consequential for real families,” the president said before sitting to sign the order.
