no lgbtq category included in census proposal for 2020 count


washington — the u.s. census bureau did not include a separate count of lgbtq americans in its proposal for the 2020 census.the category had been sought by gay rights advocates.the bureau counts americans according to race, gender and other characteristics. its proposal submitted to congress this week did not have a separate category for lgbtq.the census bureau said it had no immediate comment.but gay rights advocates say it's more evidence that trump is going back on a campaign promise to protect the gay community. last week, the department of health and human services removed questions on sexuality from two of its surveys.the trump administration also has cancelled an obama administration directive that students should use the bathroom that matches their gender identity.

trump is preparing to roll back obama's protections for transgender students. ca
