Donald Trump & LGBT Equality

By Charlotte Robinson, July 20, 2016
Before Republican nominee Donald Trump takes the stage in Cleveland once again, HRC has passed on some interesting & crucial facts all LGBT Americans & allies should know about Trump’s position on LGBT civil rights provided by JoDee Winterhof, Senior Vice President for Policy & Political Affairs for the Human Rights Campaign: Fact One: He has told multiple media outlets that he would appoint Supreme Court justices who would reverse nationwide marriage equality – a fundamental right that you & I fought to secure. Fact Two: Trump wants to sign the so-called "First Amendment Defense Act" into law, a bill to enable Kim Davis-style discrimination against LGBTQ people nationwide. Fact Three: He would encourage states to decide individually to enact discriminatory, hate-fueled laws like North Carolina's HB2. Fact Four: Trump says he looks forward to repealing President Obama’s executive orders, meaning the anti-discrimination order protecting LGBTQ employees working for federal contractors is at risk. Fact Five: Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump has attacked, belittled & maligned anyone & everyone he considers different. So how scary is that? Remember this info as you watch Trump & his supporters on network television spew their dangerous rhetoric & make sure your friends & family have the facts as well as & don't forget that the Republican National Convention platform supports so-called conversion therapy, calls for the banning marriage equality, rejects LGBTQ families & bans transgender & gender non-conforming people from using restrooms that match their gender identity.
