It’s time for a little change: A look at the latest from the White House on LGBTQ rights
The Trump administration has made some progress on LGBTQ issues, but it’s far from a full-on policy overhaul.
Here are some of the biggest stories of the week.
Trump signs bill that will help LGBTQ youth get jobs, housing, and legal protections in states where they are not welcome The White House signed an executive order Wednesday that will provide LGBTQ youth with job and housing protections under the Workforce Equality Act.

Since 2015, LGBTQ people in the U.S. have earned equal employment opportunities (EOE) and equal access to education, but LGBTQ people still face discrimination and exclusion in public housing, schools, workplaces, and other areas.
The Trump executive order will provide some protections to LGBTQ youth in states that do not allow them to use gender-specific bathrooms and locker rooms.
The policy will also provide job and residency protections to youth living in the country illegally.
Transgender youth are facing a wave of discrimination at school A new report from the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF) found that at least 3,000 transgender students are being harassed, bullied, and mistreated in schools across the country.
The report highlights the high rates of bullying and harassment that trans students face, including in schools where they do not conform to societal expectations for how transgender people should dress, act, and identify.
TLDEF is calling for federal legislation that would provide transgender students with equal access in school.
Trump’s new budget targets the Trans Community and cuts funding for trans youth The Trump budget proposed cutting funding to the Transgender Community Development Block Grant (TCBG) by nearly $2 billion.

Trump proposed the cuts to the program, which was established under the Obama Administration to help students transition into non-transgender roles.
This proposed cuts would also impact the transgender youth and families that are directly impacted by these cuts.
TLDF called the proposed cuts to TCBG “one of the most draconian cuts to transgender youth funding in decades.”

Trans women of color have also been underrepresented at all levels of the military.
President Trump has made history by honoring the Congressional Silver Medal for valor and military service for transgender service members.
