Mike Johnson and the “Homosexual Agenda”: Trump’s Ally in Congress has a History of Anti-LGBTQ+ hate

The Republican House Speaker has for decades lobbied against efforts to extend legal rights to the LGBTQ+ community.

As a lawyer in Louisiana and then as an elected politician, Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., has spent most of his life trying to save America and the world from the “destructive” influence of gay culture, which he apparently believes is more harmful to democracy than helping Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the 2020 election.

Now speaker of the House, the Louisiana Republican is for the first time presiding over the chamber during Pride Month, an occasion he has not noted in any public statement. Critics would argue his record speaks for itself.

Johnson’s vehement opposition to anything gay puts him on the far right of even the current Republican caucus, which includes members who claim to be welcoming of the LGBTQ+ community. But he’s also the Republican leader at a time when his party has stepped up its attacks on trans people, in word and deed. As someone who has worked to thwart “the homosexual agenda’s assault on the traditional family” since his time as a young lawyer, Johnson is not likely to moderate his stance now — and his ascendancy suggests that Donald Trump’s GOP is okay with that.
