A New American Gold Standard

After months of dreading what will happen in America for our LGBT community when Trump officially became the 45th president we immediately experienced it as his homophobic administration removed the LGBT rights page from the government website on January 20th. After millions of people protested globally on Saturday for the Women's March For America sending an important unified message to Trump that we believe in basic dignity, respect & equal rights for every person in this country & that we are committed to fighting back against bigotry in all its forms, his reaction was a tweet from ‏@realDonaldTrump on January 22nd stating “Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.” We would like to remind Trump that we all did vote however the popular vote was for Hillary Clinton not for him. We also learned on January 20th that climate change & civil rights pages have also been removed from the official government website & he even censored the Twitter account of the National Parks Service for posting photos that proved his crowd size was less than Obama's. Now after enduring a phony press conference to lambast the media about reporting facts & figures that we could obviously see with our own eyes the new press secretary refused to answer questions. Adding more insult to injury, Sunday we had to listen to Trump’s representative KellyAnne Conway on national TV bold-faced lying & calling it "alternative facts". Perhaps it’s time to replace Trump with an alternative president. Suggestions???

After participating in the Boston March on Saturday and watching and hearing about the millions who marched globally I am heartened and feel empowered again. He can erase us from the website, but we still exist and will make sure we're heard.
