Joe Biden said the United States of America is at the forefront of the fight for the rights of the LGBT community.

On February 4, 2021, US President Joe Biden declared his administration will advance LGBT rights around the world, reports the Christian Headlines.

The White House released the memorandum shortly after Biden said in a speech at the State Department that he wants his agencies to “reinvigorate our leadership on the LGBTQI issues and do it internationally.”

The memorandum says, “brave lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI+) activists” around the world “are fighting for equal protection under the law, freedom from violence, and recognition of their fundamental human rights.”

“The United States belongs at the forefront of this struggle – speaking out and standing strong for our most dearly held values,” the memorandum says. “It shall be the policy of the United States to pursue an end to violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or sex characteristics, and to lead by the power of our example in the cause of advancing the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons around the world.”

The memorandum said various US agencies such as the Departments of State, Treasury, Defense, Justice, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Health and Human Services, and Homeland Security should strengthen the country's leadership on LGBT issues around the world.

As reported, the US Senate for the first time approved an openly gay minister for the post of the minister.
