One Year After Bostock Ruling, LGBTQ+ Rights Still Threatened

Statement from Brian K. Bond, Executive Director of PFLAG National

June 15, 2021 - Brian K. Bond, Executive Director of PFLAG National, released the following statement:

"One year ago, the U.S. Supreme Court took a major step to assure that LGBTQ+ people had the right to get and keep a job. During the pandemic, this assurance has helped PFLAG families across the country feel a little less burdened. Yet, we are keenly aware that federal law does not fully protect LGBTQ+ people, especially transgender people of color, and Black transgender people in particular.

There are policy solutions at the ready to ensure people who need housing, education, credit, and healthcare get it. We must pass the Equality Act now to ensure full protections; PFLAGers everywhere will continue to work until the Equality Act is the law of the land."


PFLAG is the first and largest organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people, their parents and families, and allies. With over 400 chapters and nearly 250,000 members and supporters crossing multiple generations of families in major urban centers, small cities, and rural areas across America, PFLAG is committed to creating a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed.
