“The GSA’s complete disregard for our country’s most sacred principal of equality is shameful, discriminatory, and Un-American. There are an estimated 95,000 LGBT people who work tirelessly for our country and removing LGBT from the EEO Statement sends the message that they aren’t valued and won’t be protected. As the world’s largest corporations move to increase inclusion and drive diversity, it is hard to believe this administration continues to move in the opposite direction. Out & Equal will continue to work directly with and advocate alongside our proud and hardworking LGBT colleagues in civil service.”
