Cheers and Jeers: Thursday

6 3 1

Thanks, Mr. President.

This month, we remind the LGBTQI community that they are loved and cherished. My Administration sees you for who you are—deserving of dignity, respect, and support. As I said in my State of the Union Address—especially to our younger transgender Americans—I will always have your back as your President so that you can be yourself and reach your God-given potential.

Today and every day, my Administration stands with every LGBTQI American in the ongoing struggle against intolerance, discrimination, and injustice. We condemn the dangerous State laws and bills that target LGBTQI youth. And we remain steadfast in our commitment to helping LGBTQI people in America and around the world live free from violence.

This month, we honor the resilience of LGBTQI people, who are fighting to live authentically and freely. We reaffirm our belief that LGBTQI rights are human rights.

Read the full proclamation here. Don’t forget to pride-light up that White House, Joe.

Cheers and Jeers for Thursday, June 2, 2022
