An email from GLAAD’s Drew Anderson who is Director of Campaigns and Rapid Response said:
Happy Friday, folks – As we’ve hit now three weeks of the Donald Trump government shutdown, GLAAD wanted to point out what this shut down could mean for the LGBTQ community, specifically – the federal workers who are currently furloughed and going without a paycheck.
GLAAD tweeted this out in response to the Trump shutdown reaching its third week:

Also, as someone who was furloughed during the 2013 government shutdown, I understand what these government workers are going through. Not getting a check means maxing out credit cards, pulling out loans, and doing whatever possible to make ends meet – while you technically are still employed. It’s not a good situation.
As always, give me a shout if you have further questions. Happy weekend – and go Colts!
