LGBTQ people to Trump: We're here, we're queer, and you won't erase us

LGBTQ people to Trump: We're here, we're queer, and you won't erase us
- You may not count us, but you can count on us fighting back.
That's the message the LGBTQ community is sending the Trump administration, after the U.S. Census Bureau revealed this week that questions related to sexuality or gender identity will not be included in the 2020 U.S. Census or the more detailed American Community Survey.

The move caused LGBTQ media advocacy organization GLAAD to declare that the Trump administration is "erasing the LGBTQ community from the USA." The feeling of erasure has resonated with the community, leading queer people to mobilize around the hashtag #CantEraseUs.
