Joe Biden has been enjoying himself recently. As well as filming an episode of Law & Order last week, the vice president also took on the honourable "I’m going to be out there with a platform to talk about the things I care about. Foreign policy, violence against women and the inequity in the tax structure."

Pointing to a litany of crises — the pandemic, economic decline, climate change, wildfires, threats to LGBTQ equality — Biden said the common denominator is President Donald Trump.

“A president who makes things worse not better. Who brings chaos not order. Who sees violence and only fans the flames,” he said in a recorded three-minute speech.

“The White House should never be a source of opposition or fear or oppression,” he added. “It should be a source of hope, of moral courage and of unification.”

Accusing Trump of trying to roll back protections for the LGBTQ community, Biden promised to be a staunch ally.

Biden has nearly a half-century of experience serving in government on city council, the U.S. Senate and as Barack Obama's two-time vice president. Donald Trump insisted Thursday he is at a 'tremendous disadvantage' in the presidential debates where he will face-off against Joe Biden .

“You deserve a partner in the White House to fight with conviction and win the battles ahead,” he said. “Together we’ll pass the Equality Act, protect LGBTQ youth, expand access to health care, support LGBTQ workers, win full rights for transgender Americans, recommit to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic by 2025, advance LGBT rights around the globe, not just at home.”

Biden has made LGBTQ rights a significant part of his presidential campaign from the beginning.

Last year, he promised that the Equality Act, which adds sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of protected characteristics in numerous areas, would be a top legislative priority in his first 100 days in office.

“It will be the first thing I ask to be done,” he told attendees at an HRC gala in Columbus, Ohio.

His campaign’s LGBTQ platform includes reinstating protections for LGBTQ people experiencing homelessness, stopping what the HRC calls an "epidemic" of violence against transgender women of color, and ending broad exemptions for anti-discrimination laws.

“Duty, honor, country — those are the values that drive our service members,” Biden said in a statement to LGBTQ Nation. “And if I have the privilege of serving as the next commander in chief, I will ensure that our American heroes know I will have their back and honor their sacrifice — always, no matter who they are or who they love.”

HRC unanimously endorsed Biden on May 6, the eighth anniversary of his publicly stated support of same-sex marriage in a 2012 interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“Vice President Joe Biden is the leader our community and our country need at this moment,” HRC President Alphonso David said at the time. “His dedication to advancing LGBTQ equality, even when it was unpopular to do so, has pushed our country and our movement forward.”

David said the stakes in the upcoming election couldn’t be higher.

“Our democracy is at stake — whether we’ll be living in a democracy or a totalitarian regime,” he told NBC News. “For LGBT people that means our very lives are at stake. We could be functionally erased.”

New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay told MSNBC on Tuesday that Joe Biden 's platform is "far more liberal than Barack Obama's was years ago," adding that it was "more similar" to Sen.

In his criticism of Trump, David cited a number of the administration’s policies that have sought to impede LGBTQ rights, including its transgender military ban, its attempt to roll back trans health care protections and its support for allowing child welfare agencies to reject same-sex prospective parents.

“HRC endorsed Joe Biden because he has a long record of support for the LGBT community, but he also affords us the dignity we deserve,” David said. “He engages people like they’re human beings.”
