Gay Hollywood: Out and Proud LGBT Stars

"Any chance Jeff Sessions gets to thwart progress on LGBT rights, he will take," George Takei tweets.

Hollywood is outraged over Attorney General Jeff Sessions announcement that the DOJ has rolled back protections for the LGBTQ community in the name of "religious freedom."

Sessions wrote a memo Friday instructing federal agencies and attorneys to protect religious freedom, in terms that many fear will give employers a "license to discriminate" against LGBTQ people if they have a "moral" or "religious" objection to their sexual orientation. This comes a day after Sessions reversed an Obama policy and declared sex discrimination "does not encompass discrimination based on gender identity, per se, including transgender status."

"Trump administration's latest in a string of attacks on trans people: trans students, trans service members, & now employment protections for trans workers. This systematic gutting of non-discrimination protections for trans people is a disgrace! @jeffsessions @realDonaldTrump," Caitlyn Jenner tweeted.
