Defend LGBTQIA+ Rights

Everyone should be free to live their truth, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. It’s on all of us to protect that freedom by standing up for our friends and neighbors – but our elected leaders need to bear the brunt of this responsibility. I have zero tolerance for hate and bigotry, so I helped lead efforts to end the FDA’s discriminatory ban on gay and bisexual men donating blood. I’m also fighting to pass the Equality Act, which would finally make it illegal to discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity in employment, housing, and public accommodations. And I’m fighting to better protect LGBTQIA+ youth from bullying and harassment.
