White House Lights for LGBTQI+ and Not for Memorial Day—Intense Discussions on Social Media
(AP)The White House and President Joe Biden celebrated 2022 Pride Month which kicks off in June and honors the LGBTQI+ community today by lighting up the White House in rainbow LGBTQI+ colors. The social media discussions are intense, to say the least.
