Recently the President of the United States Donald Trump issued an announcement marking June as “National Homeownership Month”, “National Ocean Month”, “African-American Music Appreciation Month” and “Great Outdoors Month” – but LGBT Pride was out of the list. The move has gone down well with anti-LGBT groups, with the Family Research Council calling on him to move forward in it and to order the government to ban prides across the country.In their blog the FRC wrote: “Today, the Pentagon carried on a tradition President Obama began in 2012, holding a special ‘pride’ event at the same time that other military leaders are ready to turn the page on eight years of social engineering. “It was a disappointing development for conservatives, who thought they had an ally in new Defense Secretary James Mattis. It’s time for Donald Trump to take a wrecking ball to the LGBT distractions of his predecessor and turn the page on policies that offend more people than they ‘honor’.”
