GLAAD co-hosted the first Presidential Candidate Forum on LGBTQ issues to take place during the 2020 election cycle.
The National League of Cities recognized six cities for implementing programs that enhance and promote cultural diversity in their communities, 40 organizations protested in front of the White House on International Women’s Day on March 8 and the United States Department of State announced that its official delegation to the 61st annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women included representatives of two organizations known to oppose the United Nations human rights system, LGBTQ rights, and women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights.
Internet rumors ran amok when multiple White House pages disappeared on inauguration day. The previous administration’s information on LGBTQ rights, climate change, civil rights and other issues were seemingly taken down. In reality, the pages were moved to a different URL, ObamaWhiteHouse.gov, but their absence from the official White House site is no less alarming.
