“This administration’s erasure of LGBTQ people from the guidelines meant to protect them is a license for bullying behavior. Everyone deserves to feel safe and valued at work, including those who work for the federal government. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people are named for protection in employment policies because they have been victims of discrimination in the past. Sadly, those protections are still needed today. As Americans dedicated to ending bullying, we condemn this attempt to remove protection from people who deserve it.”
