White House Launches LGBT Issues Page
To kick off June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month, the White House this week unveiled a new landing page dedicated to LGBT rights issues called “Winning the Future for LGBT Americans.”
The landing page, which you can find here, links through to news on the administration’s recent work for the LGBT community, provides fact sheets on LGBT rights issues, and also gives links to various related resources.
President Obama is committed to working with all Americans to create the brightest future for our country through innovation, education and building new technologies and more connected communities.
Since taking office, the President has demonstrated that his vision for a brighter future includes greater equality for LGBT Americans. The President and his Administration are dedicated to eliminating barriers to equality, fighting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and engaging LGBT communities across the country.
This site is a tool for you to learn about how President Obama and his team are working to win the future for LGBT Americans.
The landing page takes users through to an LGBT rights specific blog where recent accomplishments and issues are listed, as well as statements from various officials within the administration. View that here.
There are also specific links to LGBT related videos from the White House and a dedicated link to the Obama administration’s contributions to the It Gets Better project. Click here to browse that section.
Users can also sign up for email updates on LGBT related issues here.
The page also links through to the White House’s stopbullying.gov page.
The site provides information on how to deal with bullying and covers teens, young adults, parents and educators. It also provides a page on community actions, and there are dedicated pages dealing with cyberbullying and anti-LGBT bullying too.
