Some American embassies chose to decorate their facilities with rainbow-colored items ahead of this weekend, despite the Trump administration’s refusal to allow embassies to hang LGBT flags on official flag poles.

The U.S. embassy in New Delhi changed its cover photo to an image of rainbow lights on the building, though it’s not clear if the picture was taken at the embassy this year or a previous one.

The U.S. Consulate General Chennai in India held a ceremony and flag-raising ceremony May 31.

The U.S. embassy in Seoul, South Korea, posted a large pride flag on the front of the building in late May, ahead of what is known as “Pride Month” in June. The flag was larger and hanging higher than the U.S. flag hanging out front, which would have violated the standards held by former President Barack Obama’s State Department.

The U.S. embassy in Santiago, Chile, raised a flag on May 17 in honor of the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia.

The American embassy in Austria, Vienna, also raised a flag in mid-May, though it remains unclear if those flags are still up as of June 8.

Representatives from embassies in Brazil, Germany, Israel, and Latvia had requested permission to show support for the LGBT community, but were denied.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has said he believes marriage should be defined as between a man and a woman, was in his post during June last year, though it’s not clear what protocols the administration set into place at the time.

Pompeo told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during his April 2018 hearing he did not support marriage between two people of the same sex.

“When I was a politician, I had a very clear view on whether it was appropriate for two same-sex persons to marry,” Pompeo said at the time. “I stand by that.”

“So do you not believe it is appropriate for two gay people to marry?” Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., asked.

“Senator, I continue to hold that view,” Pompeo said.

As the nation’s capital and cities from Boston to West Hollywood, Calif., prepare for gay pride events this weekend, the White House is committing to President Trump’s recent embrace of LGBT Pride Month. But Trump is having a hard time winning over skeptics.

After two years of silence, Trump last week became the first GOP president to recognize the month, with a call for the global decriminalization of homosexuality.

Aide Kellyanne Conway amplified his stance, calling him the first president to take office “approving of gay marriage.”

But the left-leaning Human Rights Campaign denounced Trump’s words as “propaganda” that belied negative actions by his administration, including Trump’s transgender military ban and rollback of anti-discrimination rules.

Others expressed doubts about Trump’s sincerity, including former Rep. Robert Bauman, R-Md., who was outed as gay in 1980 before losing reelection.

“I assume someone calculated on his part that it’s beneficial politically,” Bauman told the Washington Examiner.

Bauman said Trump was the first Republican candidate for president he did not vote for — over policies unrelated to gay rights — and that Trump “was for abortion before he was against abortion,” and may be similarly fickle in his latest remarks.

The former Republican congressman, who authored a 1986 book about being a gay conservative, said he opposes Trump because of “his disregard for the Constitution that he doesn’t seem to know anything about” and the fact that he “conducts his administration as though he is a dictator.”

The White House defended Trump’s sincerity. White House spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement that Trump has always “opposed discrimination of any kind” against gay and transgender people and “never considered LGBT Americans second class citizens.”

“Donald Trump, as a private citizen and as president, has stood strong with a message of inclusion and advocated for the equal treatment of all, including the LGBT community,” Deere said, calling Trump “the first U.S. President in our history to favor same-sex marriage when he was sworn in.”

Former President Barack Obama opposed legal recognition of same-sex marriage until 2012. Hillary Clinton dropped her opposition in 2013.

Trump, meanwhile, has many enthusiastic gay supporters. As a candidate, he posed with a rainbow flag. During an April visit to Texas, a supporter watched his motorcade with a rainbow flag in one hand and a Trump reelection flag in the other. A woman photo-bombing a New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio press conference in Trump Tower last month held a flag saying “LGBT for Trump.”

But Trump’s choice of Mike Pence as vice president upset gay activists. Trump reportedly joked that Pence “wants to hang” gay people. And despite saying as a candidate that he didn’t care which Trump Tower bathroom transgender Caitlyn Jenner used, he abruptly ordered a transgender military ban in 2017.

And while Trump recognized the month in tweets and a supplementary White House statement, he has not issued a formal proclamation, as did Obama.

In a recent series of events, however, Trump’s gay ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, launched a campaign to persuade other countries to legalize homosexuality, and Trump said in a Fox News interview that “it’s good” to see Democratic presidential candidate and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg campaign with his husband.

Bauman said Trump’s recent remarks are unlikely to have a political effect. He believes most voters will overlook gay rights as their primary voting concern, as he did for years when the Republican Party took a more hostile stance.

“I don’t think he gets very many gay votes,” Bauman said. “I don’t think Trump could do anything that could convert gay people on the Left that oppose him. They are dissatisfied for other issues.”

Bauman added he doesn’t believe Trump’s embrace means an end to culture-war tensions over homosexuality.

“Trump is not a bellwether for society. He is an aberration,” Bauman said.

Peter Boykin Speaks At Greensboro NC City Council About Trumps Acknowledgement Of #LGBTPRIDE Month #MarchForTrump #AmericanPride #GayPride

I’m at City Council in Greensboro NC to give my monthly speech to trigger the left .. here is my speech.

“As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or See More even execute individuals…..on the basis of their sexual orientation. My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!”

These words came straight out of the mouth of Donald Trump, a man the leftist gay community would have you believe is a homophobe. This is the same person who at the 2016 Republican National Convention, Trump promised “to do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens. … Believe me.” The same man who is EVERYONES President that also not only worked to comfort and support those with HIV from as far back as the 1980’s and who has recently in May tweeted these words “Great news today: My Administration just secured a historic donation of HIV prevention drugs to help expand access to PrEP for the uninsured and those at risk. Will help us achieve our goal of ending the HIV epidemic in America!”

This being June, and Pride Month I want EVERYONE to know in this city that many people in the Republican party just as much as Trump does, shows, and acts on it that we all support the WHOLE community, which includes it’s #LGBTQ !

Last Friday, Donald Trump became the first Republican president in American history to acknowledge LGBT Pride Month. This came two and a half years after he entered office as the first president of either party in American history to fully support marriage equality. These are facts – not fake news – and they represent a fundamental shift in the acceptance of gays and lesbians in the Republican Party.

Democrats didn’t want Trump to acknowledge LGBT Pride Month at all. They’d rather not have gay and lesbian voters know that this White House is spearheading an initiative to decriminalize homosexuality worldwide, led by U.S. Ambassador to Germany my friend Ric Grenell, the highest-ranking openly gay man currently serving in the Trump administration.

This same left didn’t want you to know is that there are wide swaths of gay and lesbian Americans who want the same things as their straight counterparts: border security, limited government, a strong military, and the tools to create wealth.

These gays and lesbians support an administration that stands strong against terror because we saw what happened at Pulse Orlando when a terrorist killed 49 of us in cold blood in the name of ISIS. These gays and lesbians support border security because we know that unchecked illegal immigration depresses wages, brings drugs and violence across the border, and we in Greensboro are susceptible to all of these things, too.

I make this plea to ALL, Being a REPUBLICAN DOES NOT MAKE YOU A CERTAIN RELIGION, and BEING of the GAY COMMUNITY DOES NOT MAKE YOU A CERTAIN POLITICAL PARTY

I again invite people to attend the MARCH FOR TRUMP JUNE 15 Downtown at Noon at Governmental Plaza for an AMERICAN PRIDE RALLY of Free Speech, We do ask those who attend that we keep this event positive, and about unity. All will be invited & we will not discriminate groups/individuals. This Event is Inclusive for EVERYONE no matter your race, gender, religion, sexuality, or political party. But this event will not be Anti-TRUMP

I URGE EVERYONE – ESPECIALLY my fellow Republicans to come together this month in PEACE and UNITY. STOP THE HATE and Lets Work Together to Make America and Greensboro a Great Place for EVERYONE.

Full Disclosure some words from this speech come directly from a Great Gay Black American called Rob Smith.

Gov. Jared Polis, the nation’s first openly gay governor, gave a rousing pre-launch Friday to his first LGBT Pride Month by signing into law two measures designed to improve life for many Coloradans.

House Bill 1039 allows transgender people to obtain new birth certificates instead of amended ones, without having to undergo gender reassignment surgery.

House Bill 1129 bans licensed medical professionals from providing conversion therapy to minors.

HB 1039 will be known as Jude’s Law, after the now 13-year-old transgender girl who testified for the measure since age 9.

Jude, joined by her sister and parents, said she’s glad the bill finally has been passed and signed.

“I knew that I could be helping so many people just by showing up and telling my own story,” she said.

Testifying at the Capitol takes “a lot of confidence,” especially for a young person, she said, but she’s had strong support from her family and many others. Her parents asked that her last name not be published.

“Today’s an exciting day for an inclusive Colorado,” Polis said before signing the bills on the Capitol’s west steps. Accompanied by first gentleman Marlon Reis, Polis noted that it’s been 27 years since Coloradans voted in favor of Amendment 2, which allowed discrimination based on sexual orientation. The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the law in 1996.

Colorado since has undergone a “remarkable transformation” into a state that values the contributions of every resident, he added. “We are stronger together; we accept and celebrate our diversity.”

Under HB 1039, the state registrar in the Department of Public Health and Environment can issue a new birth certificate without the previously required court order or gender reassignment surgery, and those who received an amended certificate can seek a new one.

Surgery isn’t always an option, supporters say, because of medical conditions, cost or because the person is a minor.

For minors, such as Jude, a medical professional must sign an affidavit that the minor is undergoing a gender transition with the doctor’s approval.

The new law also will end the practice of publishing the name change in a newspaper when it’s due to a change in gender identity. Supporters say such publication poses a risk to those people.

Until the new law takes effect Jan. 1, changing the birth certificate still will require a court order.

The changes in Colorado law come as the Trump administration is banning transgender people from serving in the military, proposing a rule this week to allow health care providers to discriminate on the basis of gender identity.

The administration also issued a memothat would erase federal recognition of transgender people.

Another proposed rule, also issued in the past week, would remove protections for transgender people at homeless shelters.

But in Colorado, Polis also signed HB 1129, banning licensed physicians and mental health professionals from providing conversion therapy to those under age 18. Parts of the law take effect Aug. 2, and it’s in full effect Oct. 1.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway touted President Trump’s record on gay rights Friday, telling journalists Trump was the first president to take office as a supporter of legal same-sex marriage.

“I’m old enough to remember the 2008 campaign where Hillary and Obama were arguing with each other about who was more in favor of traditional marriage,” Conway said on the White House driveway. “It wasn’t so long ago. He is the first president to start as president approving of gay marriage.”

Conway spoke moments after Trump published tweets urging other countries to decriminalize homosexuality, in recognition of June as gay pride month. That effort is led by the gay U.S. ambassador to Germany, Ric Grenell.

Trump tweeted: “As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation. My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!”

The tweets are an evolution away from Trump’s arms-length approach to gay pride month during his first two years in office, when Trump abandoned Obama’s formal proclamations and avoided public comment.

Conway avoided commenting on Trump’s reimposition of a military ban on transgender members, but she said that Trump feels strongly about decriminalizing homosexuality and that “it is something we discussed publicly and privately over a number of years.”

“It is just a disgrace what happens to people based on their sexual orientation, particularly around the globe. Including countries where, by the way, a lot of media companies film their movies,” Conway said.

Trump’s tweets closely follow his statements in a Fox News interview that he approves of Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg campaigning with his husband.

“I think that’s something that perhaps some people will have a problem with. I have no problem with it whatsoever. I think it’s good,” Trump said of the South Bend mayor’s marriage.

Homosexuality was legalized in all 50 states by a 2003 Supreme Court ruling. In 2015, the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.

Former President Barack Obama opposed legal recognition of gay marriages until 2012. Clinton ended her opposition in 2013.
