GLAAD: Possible anti-LGBTQ executive order is nothing more than a "License to Discriminate"

Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD – the world’s largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, issued the following statement after Politico reported the Trump Administration could sign an executive order that would use “religious freedom” as a way to permit open discrimination against LGBTQ Americans across the nation. Reports cite that this executive order is not “dialed back much – if at all” compared to the draft order leaked to the media last February.

"If this possible executive order is similar to February’s draft, it would do nothing except give a national license to discriminate, and endanger LGBTQ people and their families. President Trump is trying to create an America where my children could be turned away if a pediatrician doesn’t accept my wife and me. Nothing could be more un-American.”
