Washington, D.C. — President Trump has announced that his administration will preserve the longstanding executive order providing LGBT workplace protections for federal contractors.

The statement from the White House reads, in part, “President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community. President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election.”

“Donald Trump campaigned promising to be a ‘real friend’ to the LGBT community, and now President Trump is delivering on that commitment.,” Log Cabin Republicans President Gregory T. Angelo stated. “Log Cabin Republicans is proud to have directly advocated for this important preservation of LGBT equality in the federal workforce, and heartened to see that the recommendations prescribed in our white paper on this subject have been reflected in the Trump Administration’s decision to maintain the LGBT Non-Discrimination Executive Order.”
