President Biden just signed two executive orders: One focused on expanding food assistance and delivering stimulus checks to very low-income Americans, and the other on raising the minimum wage to $15 for the federal workforce.

Economic equality is LGBTQ equality. Increasing the minimum wage to $15 nationwide would reduce poverty for male same-sex couples by a third and for female same-sex couples by almost one-half.

Having my husband @Chasten by my side yesterday in a hearing room is something not seen before for a Cabinet nominee. And our hope is that it makes it easier for the next person to come along.

In one of her first visits, @FLOTUS chose @whitmanwalker, one of the foremost LGBTQ clinics and providers for those living with HIV & AIDS in D.C. Our community’s health is clearly a priority for this administration. There’s so much good we can do.

To advance their own careers, anti-LGBTQ politicians have made us fight for our existence. For our right to love each other. For our right to marry. For our right to live openly.

Now they're targeting trans kids in Montana.

Thank you @ABlinken for expressing the commitment of the Biden administration to the human rights of LGBTQ people around the world, and the urgent need to reduce anti-LGBTQ violence, particularly against trans people of color.

BREAKING: The NY State Senate will vote to repeal the Walking While Trans ban.

New Yorkers have been fighting for years to end what’s become stop-and-frisk for the transgender and non-binary community.

The end of the #WalkingWhileTrans ban is coming. Thank you to @bradhoylman, and all the advocates fighting to @repealWWT.

Jaime Harrison has been officially elected as DNC chair, as expected.

Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, and Texas Rep. Filemon Vela Jr. were elected as vice chairs.

The officers were elected 407-4, per the DNC.

Under the leadership of @harrisonjaime & this incredible new team of DNC officers, @TheDemocrats are poised to harness our collective power at the ballot box to elect leaders who will advance equality for all.

HRC lamenta la muerte de Samuel Edmund Damián Valentín, un hombre trans que fallecio el nueve de enero en Puerto Rico. Se cree que la muerte de Samuel es al menos la segunda muerte violenta de una persona trans o no conforme con el género en 2021.

LGBTQ people cannot be turned away from public housing or homeless shelters on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity, and private landlords cannot discriminate against them either.

Doctors and nurses cannot refuse treatment, and banks cannot refuse services simply because someone identifies as LGBTQ.

Politics at the national level always translates to changes on the ground. These are some of the most significant we’ve ever seen from a federal administration. We thank @POTUS and @VP for their historic leadership.
