LGBTQ+ persons and their families deserve the same rights and protections when it comes to housing, health care, and the workplace. I support federal legislation to achieve these protections because too many state legislatures are hard at work to pass discriminatory laws meant to deny equal rights and protections to gay and transgender Americans.

I support the Equal Employment Opportunity Commision aggressively enforcing non-discrimination in the workplace. 

I support enacting the Every Child Deserves a Family Act to prevent taxpayer-funded child welfare agencies from discriminating against prospective adoptive or foster parents based on sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, sex, or religion.
