GLAAD, THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS AND LOCAL LGBTQ ORGANIZATIONS IN SOUTH CAROLINA RESPOND TO GOVERNOR HENRY MCMASTER SIGNING A BILL INTO LAW BANNING TRANSGENDER YOUTH FROM SCHOOL SPORTS

| May 17, 2022

GLAAD: “South Carolina legislators are sending an unmistakable and cruel message to LGBTQ South Carolinians and all Americans that they stand strongly against LGBTQ rights. Laws like this send messages that make LGBTQ people less safe, including children. Every child needs to hear the message that you belong, sports are for everyone, and everyone wins when everyone is included.”

GLAAD RESPONDS TO HISTORIC APPOINTMENT OF KARINE JEAN-PIERRE AS WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY, THE FIRST BLACK WOMAN AND FIRST OUT LGBTQ PERSON TO SERVE IN THE ROLE

| May 5, 2022

GLAAD: “Karine Jean-Pierre is a brilliant communicator and person of tremendous intelligence, humor and poise, skills that will serve her and our country well in her new role. There are few jobs more visible or more important to our democracy than to share information with the White House press corps and answer their questions. To have an out queer person of color speak for the President of the United States says everything about Karine’s talent and heart, and recognizes that LGBTQ people can belong, contribute and succeed in every room. Our whole community looks forward to seeing Karine deliver for our nation and represent every LGBTQ person with pride.”
