The Trump administration is reportedly set to launch a worldwide campaign to end the criminalization of homosexuality in dozens of countries where its still against the law, but when asked about it today, the president appeared to be unaware of the push. On Tuesday, NBC News reported that U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, an openly gay man in the Trump administration, is expected to lead the initiative. Although the new project is still in its planning stages, officials told the news organization that the administration will likely be working alongside global organizations — including the United Nations, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the European Union — to achieve its goal. As part of the campaign, the U.S. embassy hosted a strategy dinner with 11 LGBT activists across Europe to discuss the implementation of the project. The efforts will reportedly focus on the Middle East, Africa and the Caribbean, where homosexuality is still illegal in certain areas.
