President Biden issued today (Jan. 21) an Executive Order protecting the rights of the LGBTQ+ community: Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation.
The Order states:
Every person should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to live without fear, no matter who they are or whom they love.
Building on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision of Bostock v. Clayton County issued last year, President Biden has ordered all federal agencies to review ”all existing orders, regulations, guidance documents, policies, programs, or other agency actions” that prohibit sex discrimination, including any that relate to the agency’s own compliance with such statutes or regulations and to develop a plan to revise, suspend, or rescind such agency actions, or promulgate new agency actions, as necessary to fully implement statutes that prohibit sex discrimination. . . .
