No American should be treated differently because of who they love. I support full federal equality for LGBT Americans because gay rights are human rights. As your Congressman, I will support legislation that:
- Protects the Equality Act to expand Title VII of the Civil Rights Act to make workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity illegal under federal law.
- Stem the staggering rate of suicide among LGBTQ youth by taking on bullying and harassment in schools and on social media.
- Preserves Marriage Equality and defends LGBTQ rights against legislation that attempts to legalize discrimination based on sexual orientation.
- Allows transgender Americans to self-identify their gender on documents, ensure that access to facilities is non-discriminatory
- Overturns efforts to ban transgender soldiers from the military.
