Trump nixes sexual-orientation questions on 2020 Census

(WASHINGTON TIMES) The Trump administration canceled plans to probe Americans for their sexual orientation in the 2020 Census, nixing efforts by congressional Democrats who’d wanted a better picture of the country’s increasingly complex family and sexual dynamics.

Gay-rights advocates had been pressing for the questions, saying it was time the country got an official count.

They appeared to have won a victory Tuesday morning, when the Census Bureau released its list of proposed subjects for 2020, and said “sexual orientation and gender identity” were new additions. But hours later the Census released an updated list striking the sexual orientation proposal.
