The Joe Biden administration reversed Donald Trump’s policy on hangin the LGBT flag on U.S. Embassies.
According to Breitbart News, “LGBT activists are cheering Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s announcement that he will reverse an order from President Donald Trump and put up ‘pride’ flags at U.S. Embassies around the world.”
“We’ve seen violence directed against LGBTQI people around the world increase,” said Blinken. “And so, I think the United States playing the role that it should be playing in standing up for and defending the rights of LGBTQI people is something that the department is going to take on and take on immediately. Raising the pride flag is one way to outright show LGBTQ solidarity.”
Blinken did not mention that Trump expressly condemned violence and specifically called out violence against LGBT communities domestically and abroad.
