Just in via press release from the White House:
Today, President Biden issued a proclamation affirming June 2021 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) Pride Month, marking a time a time of hope, progress, and promise for LGBTQ+ Americans across the country.
After four years of relentless attacks on LGBTQ+ rights, the Biden-Harris Administration has taken historic actions to accelerate the march toward full LGBTQ+ equality.
From protecting the civil rights of every LGBTQ+ American, enabling all qualified Americans – including transgender Americans – to serve their country in uniform, ensuring that LGBTQ+ Americans are leaders at every level of the federal government, to protecting and defending the human rights of LGBTQ+ persons around the world, the Biden-Harris Administration is a consistent and reliable partner in the fight for equality at home and abroad.
Too many LGBTQ+ Americans across our nation continue facing discrimination and hate, especially LGBTQ+ people of color and transgender Americans, and some states are attempting to roll back the clock on equality with discriminatory bills that target LGBTQ+ people and families.
The Biden-Harris Administration reaffirms that no one should face discrimination or harassment because of who they are or whom they love.
As President Biden said during his first joint address to Congress, the President has the back of LGBTQ+ people across the country and will continue fighting for full equality for every American – including through continuing to urge the U.S. Senate to pass the Equality Act and provide overdue civil rights protections to LGBTQ+ people and families across the country.
The statement goes on to catalogue the Biden administration’s many reversals of anti-LGBTQ Trump administration policies. Hit the link. Trump, of course, refused to issue Pride Month proclamations but instead sold rainbow swag to the homocons on his campaign site.
Read President Biden’s #PrideMonth proclamation! Happy #Pride! “This Pride Month…we reaffirm our commitment to standing in solidarity with #LGBTQ+ Americans in their ongoing struggle against discrimination and injustice.” https://t.co/LJwvskkMmM

“Biden — whose administration has been described by advocates as the most pro-LGBTQ administration in history — recognized the many LGBTQ firsts achieved so far during his presidency.” #PrideMonth https://t.co/UopoMaEztQ
