Trump Administration Erases LGBT People from 2020 Census
The U.S. Census Bureau is not proposing a separate count of LGBTQ Americans for its 2020 Census.
Still, Census experts created a foundation to ask such questions if the bureau made a decision to approve the new additions.
But Democrats previous year demanded the Census Bureau go further and explicitly ask about sexual orientation and identity, saying it was time policymakers got a better sense of increasingly complex family dynamics in America.
LGBTI advocates have reacted at anger to the news that the next United States census will not include questions on sexual orientation and gender identity.
"We carefully considered this thoughtful request and again worked with federal agencies and the OMB Interagency Working Group on Measuring Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity to determine if there was a legislative mandate to collect this data", Thompson said.
Last week, the Trump administration quietly deleted questions on sexuality from two government surveys. It defined sexual orientation to include "sexual identity, sexual attraction and sexual behavior", while gender identity encompassed "transgender identity, gender expression (i.e., masculinity vs. femininity), and the concordance between sex assigned at birth and current sex". "This topic is not being proposed to Congress for the 2020 Census or American Community Survey". The U.S. Census issued a notice shortly afterward indicating the report was corrected because the initial appendix "inadvertently" included LGBT categories.

Kentucky's trade, transportation and utilities also registered losses, decreasing by 1,200 positions over the month. Johns County had an unemployment rate of 4.3 percent in January, the second-lowest rate in the state.
According to the Washington Blade, the census has in fact, never included questions about sexual orientation or gender identity, though federal agencies have always been trying to get such questions included to help with shaping policies.
The National LGBTQ Task Force published both versions of the 2020 Census plan to its website, showing the removed row in the "Subjects Planned for the 2020 Census and American Community Survey" section. Census data is ultimately used by lawmakers and the government to inform how existing laws are enforced and how new policies are developed and money is allocated to meet the demographic needs of USA citizens.
On Tuesday, the LGBTQ Task Force, where Maury is the criminal and economic justice project director, decried the last-minute census change, saying, "We've been ERASED!" Under law, the report is due three years before Census Day, with the next one set to occur April 1, 2020. "Furthermore, for the first time ever, the decennial will offer an online response option with the ultimate goal of improving question design and data quality while addressing community concerns".
But gay rights advocates say it's more evidence that Trump is going back on a campaign promise to protect the gay community.
If you were to read some of the more hysterical headlines being churned out by certain elements of the gay press - which are, in turn, being shared far and wide by and among the Left's outrage industry - you might be forgiven for concluding that President Trump has just ordered an act of statistical genocide against the LGBTQ community.
