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.
