“The HRC’s latest PR stunt is so ignorantly detached from the incredible LGBT progress over the past decade that we’d be shocked if their donors even buy it,” Log Cabin Republicans President Charles Moran told The Washington Times.

Human Rights Campaign accused of ‘PR stunt’ with LGBTQ ‘emergency’ declaration
June 7, 2023
The Human Rights Campaign was accused of fear-mongering and donation-hustling after declaring a “national state of emergency” for LGBTQ Americans – and that by some of its fellow LGBTQ Americans.
The HRC, the nation’s largest LGBTQ advocacy group, drew headlines Tuesday with its first-ever emergency declaration, citing an “unprecedented and dangerous spike in anti-LGBTQ+ legislative assaults sweeping state houses this year.”
Swinging back were gay and lesbian organizations and commentators not on board with the HRC’s gender-ideology agenda, including the Log Cabin Republicans…
“The HRC‘s latest PR stunt is so ignorantly detached from the incredible LGBT progress over the past decade that we’d be shocked if their donors even buy it,” Log Cabin Republicans President Charles Moran told The Washington Times.
He pointed to congressional legislation signed into law last year that codifies single-sex marriage into law and polls showing growing support for equal rights for LGBTQ Americans.
Against that backdrop, the HRC “must perpetually fear-monger that the LGBT community is in grave danger in order to gin up donations and justify its existence,” Mr. Moran said.
Mr. Moran said the problem is that HRC has redefined support for LGBTQ rights to include “trans surgeries for minors, biological men competing in women’s sports, and sex and gender identity lessons in kindergarten.”
“While these issues can be emotional and complex, they in no way pose an unprecedented ‘state of emergency’ to the LGBT community, which has persevered through far worse,” he said. “We encourage the HRC team to read a history book.”
