NEW YORK – Mayor Eric Adams is pushing again in opposition to criticism from the LGBTQ neighborhood over latest appointments to his administration.
The mayor is naming Fernando Cabrera, a former Bronx metropolis council member, as senior advisor within the workplace of faith-based and neighborhood partnerships.
In 2014, after a visit to Uganda, Cabrera made feedback that supported the nation’s anty-gay and anti-abortion insurance policies. He later apologized.
Members of the town council’s LGBTQ caucus need Adams to rethink appointing Cabrera.
“if we are saying that everybody who didn’t get it then must be banished completely, that is the unsuitable message. The purpose is to transform. enable individuals to evolve, in order that they’ll see the error of their methods. That is who we’re,” Adams mentioned.
LGBTQ teams plan to protest Thursday at Metropolis Corridor.
