Synopsis: Information regarding Sexual Diversity, LGBT news, and related sexuality topics from the United States.

Main Section

Under former president Donald J. Trump, the US government sought to push back against rights claims related to sexual orientation and gender identity, sending a dangerous signal to governments around the world that such rights are disposable.

An independent United Nations (UN) human rights expert has warned that the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and gender diverse (LGBT) people are being "deliberately undermined by some state governments in the United States," urging more action on the part of the U.S. federal administration to protect them. Evidence shows that, without exception, these actions rely on prejudiced and stigmatizing views of LGBTQ persons, in particular transgender children and youth, and seek to leverage their lives as props for political profit, the independent expert said.
