Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, before Pete made a speech announcing he was ending his campaign to be the Democratic nominee for president at the Century Centre on 1 March 2020 in South Bend, IndianaChasten Buttigieg, the husband of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, took a shot at the head of the Republican National Committee over the organisation party platform regarding LGBTQ+ rights.
“Those with held religious beliefs are often the parents who force their LGBTQ children out of the home and onto the street,” Mr Buttigieg said. “I met with those kids. 40% of homeless youth in this country are LGBTQ. Re visit your party platform before you open your mouth about pride.”
Earlier this week, Joe Biden issued a proclamation recognizing June as Pride Month.
Former President Donald Trump ignored Pride Month during his four years in office.
Further, the Trump administration rescinded a regulation put in place in 2016 mandating health care protections for transgender patients under the Affordable Care Act.
Those actions fell in line with other Republican led efforts in the states to try to limited health care access for transgender young people, and keeping transgender female athletes out of competing in women sports.
Further casting doubt on Ms McDaniel optimistic vision of the GOP as a welcoming, big tent ready to accept LGBTQ+ individuals are the recent actions of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Ms Greene appeared on Newsmax explaining her latest stunt.
“The reason why this is important is the American flag is the flag that represents every single American, we don need political identity politics, we don need the Democrat party making one group more important than the other,” Ms Greene said. embassies, over any of our federal buildings is Old Glory, the beautiful Stars and Stripes, and that why I so proud of this bill and very happy to be a co sponsor.”
The practice of flying Pride flags in June above US embassies began under former President Barack Obama.
Under Mr Trump, the embassies had to seek permission before they could fly their flags. Requests to fly the flags were often rejected during Mr Trump time in office. Speaking at a G7 meeting in London on Friday, Mr Sunak added that the world had “high expectations” for what could be agreed by the finance ministers over the two day summit.
