Acting Secretary Adrianne Todman Statement in Commemoration of LGBTQIA+ Pride Month


WASHINGTON - Today, Adrianne Todman, the Acting Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued the following statement on the commemoration of LGBTQIA+ Pride Month:

“Pride Month invites us to honor and celebrate the many strides our nation has made to advance the rights of LGBTQIA+ people in the United States.

Under the leadership of President Biden and Vice President Harris, our government has moved to combat LGBTQIA+ discrimination, codified same-sex marriage, and directly addressed efforts to roll back the hard-won rights of transgender people. We have come a long way, but we still have far to go.

This Pride Month, I reaffirm HUD’s commitment to ensuring LGBTQIA+ people have access to fair and safe housing, as well as our ongoing efforts to prevent and address homelessness, especially among LGBTQIA+ youth who are particularly vulnerable. Our nation is at its best when everyone who calls this country home feels safe, protected, and free to live out their dreams.”


HUD's mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.
