Happy LGBT Pride, Eh?
One of the scores of things that progressive Americans miss about President Obama is his vocal support, policies, legal protections and the enormous strides towards full LGBT equality made under his Administration.
Now we have a rancid, thin skinned, kumquat of a President who promised “to protect LGBTQ citizens” (ROTFLMAO) who appointed a rabidly anti-gay cabinet; removed LGBT pages from the White House website on day one; and has failed to even acknowledge Gay Pride month. Quelle surprise!
For those longing for the good ol’ days of yesteryear (as in 2016) just look to “The Great White North” and our favorite Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau to shine a rainbow of equality and justice. According to PINKNews.com
Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau celebrated Pride Month by raising the rainbow flag and transgender flag above Parliament Hill, as he vowed to tackle the injustices faced by LGBT people.
He was joined by LGBT rights supporters and Parliamentarians, including his LGBT Special Advisor Randy Boissonnault.
America gets a racist antebellum Jeff Sessions and Canada’s gets an LGBT Special Advisor. Ain’t that some shit? The article goes on,
At the event he announced that the government will introduce legislation to make it possible to erase the convictions for Canadians who were found guilty under historical, unjust laws for sexual activity with a same sex partner.
Prime Minister Trudeau said: “Our government believes in equality and equal treatment for all Canadians… “I believe that it’s essential to make amends for past wrongs, and not to simply gloss over them. Our government believes in equality and equal treatment for all Canadians. We will passionately defend the rights of all our citizens regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.”
Trudeau is sexy, believes in equality; and most importantly, walks his talk.
Does he have a brother he could send down to save the United States?
