Meet Judd Deere. He’s Donald Trump’s deputy press secretary. His job is to regularly promote the Trump administration’s anti-LGBTQ policies. Oh, and did we mention he’s gay? “I’m completely open about who I am,” Deere tells Buzzfeed News. “These individuals that I work with in this building don’t treat me any differently because I’m gay.” However, Deere notes, “I don’t walk into the White House every day and say, ‘I’m Judd Deere; I’m gay.’” Deere, who is originally from Arkansas, believes the fact...

It's "just kind of consistent with the policy of the administration to exclude LGBTQ people." The White House is not spreading Christmas cheer to everyone. Invites were sent out for the annual White House holiday party, but some longtime attendees were left off the invite list—and they think their race and sexual orientation might have played a role. “I assumed it was an oversight, because I’m at the White House every day and contribute to the pool reports,” Chris Johnson, chief political...

Donald Trump’s administration has finally spoken out against Chechnya’s persecution of gay men. In an interview which aired on HBO yesterday, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov called gay people the “devil” and once again denied reports of the gay purge in the region.

He did make time to honor National Homeownership Month, Great Outdoors Month and National Ocean Month, though As just about everyone reading this knows, June is Pride Month. But if you were looking to the White House for an acknowledgement, you’d be out of luck. Breaking with tradition, President Trump declined to issue a proclamation announcing Pride Month. In between Twitter non sequiturs, Trump did manage to issue proclamations recognizing June as National Caribbean-American Heritage Month, African-American Music Appreciation Month, National...
