President Joe Biden proclaimed the month of June as “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Pride Month” in an official White House statement Tuesday, reaffirming his administration’s “commitment to do more to support LGBTQI+ rights at home and abroad.”
“Today, the rights of LGBTQI+ Americans are under relentless attack,” Biden said in the White House statement. “Members of the LGBTQI+ community — especially people of color and trans people — continue to face discrimination and cruel, persistent efforts to undermine their human rights.”
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting” Romans 1:28
The president then referenced the boom in GOP legislation that bans transgender surgeries for minors and bans biological males from women’s sports. Democrats and media claim that such legislation attacks or targets transgender people.
“An onslaught of dangerous anti-LGBTQI+ legislation has been introduced and passed in States across the country, targeting transgender children and their parents and interfering with their access to health care,” Biden continued. “These unconscionable attacks have left countless LGBTQI+ families in fear and pain. All of this compounded has been especially difficult on LGBTQI+ youth, 45 percent of whom seriously considered attempting suicide in the last year — a devastating reality that our Nation must work urgently to address.”
Biden called for Americans to remind the LGBTQI+ community “that they are loved and cherished” during the month of June.
