The US President shared a photo he took with Youth Activist Javier Gomez and wrote:
My message to all LGBTQ+ youth:
You are loved.
You are heard.
You are understood.
And we have your back
Biden’s message comes exactly two weeks after he signed an executive order aimed at combating a historic number of anti-LGBTQ bills introduced in state legislatures across the country.
The order will direct federal health and education agencies to expand access to gender affirming care and advance LGBTQ-inclusive learning environments at American schools.
The president’s order comes during LBGTQ Pride month.
