Don’t Forget To Set Clocks Back 150 Years–Climate Change And LGBT Under Attack
Less than an hour after Trump took the oath of office the White House’s webpage on climate change disappeared, the latest sign that the new administration will divert resources – and attention – from the issue.
The WhiteHouse.gov site where several pages are now changing or altogether disappearing — including a page on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.
The Obama administration introduced the White House LGBT page to highlight major legislative achievements, historic court victories and important policy changes for gay and transgender people. The page also shined a spotlight on certain campaigns for gay rights such as the “It Gets Better” campaign to help those in the LGBT community struggling with thoughts of suicide.
That campaign, as of this writing, still redirects to an archived “Strengthening Civil Rights” page. But, of course, all of that is subject to change. However, any mention of LGBT is now gone.
