The White House's LGBT Rights Page Has Been Removed

The official website of The White House underwent a series of changes as soon as Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.

Some pages were redesigned, changed or altogether removed, including the page for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.

The former link to the page, which included a statement from former President Barack Obama and links to a blog, White House LGBT Conferences, and Press Articles was removed entirely, and directing to the link results in a simple "page not found" message.

TechCrunch reports the page originally redirected to a newsletter for updates from Donald Trump that has since been removed.

Trump has never been openly against LGBT rights, but many are concerned his advisors could reverse the progress made during Barack Obama's tenure as President. A top Republican-affiliated LGBT-rights group also refused to endorse Trump.

A page on the Obama Administration's Record and the LGBT Community still exists in the White House's archives.
