Latest Trump LGBTQ Ploy or Not

By Charlotte Robinson, February 20, 2019
With the Trump administration launching 94 attacks in this country on our LGBTQ community’s rights since taking office how can we take seriously U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, the highest-profile openly gay person in the Trump administration, plan to push for decriminalization in places that still outlaw homosexuality mostly centered in the Middle East, Africa & the Caribbean. This is the Trump administration’s response in part to a reported hanging of a young gay man in Iran, Trump’s top geopolitical foe. Jeremy Kadden, HRC Senior International Policy Advocate stated, "Donald Trump & Mike Pence have turned a blind eye to a campaign of violence & murder targeting LGBTQ people in Chechnya that has stretched on for two years. They have turned away LGBTQ people fleeing violence & persecution & sent them back to countries that criminalize them & have consistently worked to undermine the fundamental equality of LGBTQ people & our families here at home from day one. If this commitment is real, we have a lot of questions about their intentions & commitments & are eager to see what proof and action will follow." Time will tell if anything will change here or it’s just a big ruse to end laws that outlaw homosexuality abroad which is in total contrast to the Trump administration’s record on LGBTQ equality here in the USA not to mention that the archaic use of the word “homosexuality” which is non-inclusive of our LGBTQ community.

This sounds great, but we know nothing sticks in this administration and so in the moment this may be real, but there is always a devious side to any action that appears to be just and fair.
