GLAAD: It’s a “Missed Opportunity” That Not One LGBTQ Question Was Asked During Tonight’s Democratic Presidential Debate

NEW YORK – GLAAD, the world’s largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, tonight released the following statement after the conclusion of the Democratic Party’s second presidential primary debate, in which viewers failed to hear any mention of the LGBTQ community from the media and 2020 presidential candidates.  

“Omitting any questions about reversing the dangerous attacks President Trump has made against LGBTQ Americans since taking office is a missed opportunity that needs to be corrected in tomorrow’s debate and across future election coverage,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD. “At a time when the Trump Administration tries to erase the LGBTQ community at every turn, the media should make LGBTQ-specific issues a priority by asking each presidential candidate how they will fight for and protect LGBTQ people across the nation.”
