President Biden parties with Elton John and Katy Perry in Stonewall National Monument

President Joe Biden courted LGBTQ+ voters with two New York events and warned about Donald Trump returning to the White House, as he looked to shake off a widely panned debate performance.

President Biden inaugurated a visitor center at the Stonewall National Monument with pop legend Elton John and Katy Perry, and later headlined a Pride Month fundraiser. 

"You marked a turning point in civil rights in America," President Biden told the crowd at the Stonewall monument, a symbol of LGBTQ+ pride for decades. And he added, that "we remain in a battle for the soul of America" but "I look around at the pride, hope and life that all of you, all of you, bring, and I know it's a battle that we're going to win."

President Biden used the evening fundraiser at the Manhattan Center as a chance to emphasize his differences with former Trump, who he said posed a threat to the rights achieved by the LGBTQ+ community. "Let there be no doubt: I will continue to defend your freedoms," President Biden said. "Trump is committed to roll back all the progress".

LGBTQ Americans are highly motivated to vote in November, with a majority preferring President Joe Biden (68%) to Donald Trump (15%) according to polling result released by GLAAD.

This is not over!
