LGBTQ Milestones: The progression of ‘Gender Equality’ peaks in 2021
The topic of LGBTQ rights is one of two polarized ideologies in America. For example, the Westboro Church’s obnoxious and homophobic rant did not help win the gay community.
On the opposite spectrum, Democrat politicians vowed to support them. LGBTQ rights made history in 2015. After Trump left, Democrats in 2021 pushed the envelope to completion.
