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.

Now they're targeting trans kids in Montana.

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