    What a Difference a Year Makes

    President Joe Biden yesterday signed a law designating Orlando's Pulse nightclub as a national monument. Also yesterday, at a Pride commemoration event in the East Room, Biden declared, "Pride is back at the White House." Pete Buttigieg, the gay transportation secretary, spoke too, as did 16-year-old Ashton Mota, an Afro-Latino transgender teen. Faces in the room included Rachel Levine, a transgender assistant health secretary, and Bree Fram, a transgender lieutenant colonel.

    A year ago, then-President Donald Trump had bravely proclaimed June as National Homeownership Month.
