Trans People Will Not Be Erased
According to a memo obtained by the New York Times, the Trump administration is reportedly seeking to narrowly define gender as strictly biological and unchangeable, based by the genitalia at birth.
PFLAG Richmond and the National Organization believe that this is part of a systematic effort to deny protection to transgender and gender-fluid individuals and we wholeheartedly oppose this measure. We stand with our transgender loved ones and all the members of the transgender community.
You are not alone; we are with you and will fight for you.
Same Sex Partners of Diplomats
As of October 1, the Trump administration is now denying visas to same-sex partners of foreign diplomats and United Nations employees. Those not married by the end of the year will be asked to leave the U.S.. The new policy requires that these couples be married, even if they are from countries where same-sex marriage is not legal. The administration portrayed this as bringing its visa practices in line with current U.S. policy extending visas only to married spouses of U.S. diplomats.
October is LGBT History Month
Celebrate LGBT History Month with us this October with us as we celebrate the achievements of lesbian, gay, transgender, and bisexual icons and recognize our shared history.
