The Washington Blade reports:
Former first lady Melania Trump, the recipient of Log Cabin’s 2021 Spirit of Lincoln award, was announced in September as the featured guest at the event. Log Cabin Republicans endorsed Trump in the 2020 election, despite criticism of the Trump administration for his anti-LGBTQ actions, such as the transgender military ban and administrative rollbacks of LGBTQ protections in the name of religious freedom. In 2016, when Trump won the presidential election against Hillary Clinton, Log Cabin opted not to endorse him.
