• Appoint an array of LGBTQ people to federal government positions . There’s wide expectation that Biden will nominate an LGBTQ person to a Cabinet post, with former presidential contender Pete Buttigieg among the possibilities. • Allocate federal resources to help curtail violence against transgender people, particularly transgender women of color. Rights groups say at least 38 transgender or gender-nonconforming people have been killed in the U.S. this year.

How Reality TV Is Helping the Cause of LGBTQ+ Rights (Guest Column)

  How Reality TV Is Helping the Cause of LGBTQ+ Rights (Guest Column) A few years ago, LGBTQ+ representation in the mainstream media was practically nonexistent, so much so that as a young boy growing up in Austria’s countryside, the only role model I remember is Celine Dion, who is not even LGBTQ+. I had my gay awakening the first time I heard “My Heart Will Go On”; […]I had my gay awakening the first time I heard “My Heart Will Go On”; I couldn’t believe someone could sing that loud, with so much passion, and this fueled my creativity. I wanted to belt the roof off like her, and my parents sent me to the attic to sing my heart out.

As the New York Times reports, Fanning’s confirmation makes him the first openly gay person to hold that post — and the highest-ranking openly gay official ever at the Pentagon. Over the years, Fanning has held many senior positions in the military , including special assistant to Defense Secretary Ash Carter, acting secretary of the Air Force, and deputy undersecretary of the Navy.

This war on women by trans activists – aided and abetted by a woke police and judiciary – has to be stopped. Free speech is in real danger when those who state scientific reality are being cancelled. There is a serious problem when those in a position of power lose the moral authority and capacity to say “No” to campaigners in these circumstances. The upshot of this loss of authority is, perversely, more authoritarianism: free speech is undermined, critics get cancelled, opponents face imprisonment.

The 20-year Navy veteran is a co-founder of Out in National Security, a group of national security professionals that advocates for LGBTQ national security professionals with activism and education.

With Thursday’s vote she became the highest-ranking openly trans official at the Department of Defense.

Former mayor of Houston Annise Parker, now the president and CEO of LGBTQ Victory Institute, celebrated the historic confirmations noting the drastic improvements for the lives of military leaders in the U.S.

“Gina and Shawn served their country when living openly could result in discharge and a lost career, so their ascension to key leadership positions is a powerful moment for those service members who served or continue to serve in silence,” Parker told the Daily News in a statement.

“Their confirmation will transform perceptions of LGBTQ people within the ranks of the U.S. military, but also among the leaders of militaries we work with around the world. While they were confirmed because of their unquestionable qualifications and experience, they symbolize our continued progress and will further disrupt any lingering notion that LGBTQ people are somehow unfit to serve,” she added.
