The LGBTQ community has made great strides in the last few decades, especially since President Obama’s presidency; however, we have already seen the Trump administration take drastic steps to undo our collective progress.
In Congress, I will be a forceful advocate for the LGBTQ Community. I will not rest until LGBTQ Americans enjoy full federal equality and work hard to pass the Equality Act. There are communities across the country, including here in Florida, that have not outlawed housing or employment discrimination based on sexual orientation. This must stop, now.
I will fight to put an end to the harmful practice of “conversion therapy” for minors, and work to implement policies that address bullying and harassment in our schools, and work hard to curb homelessness among LGBTQ youth.
I will honor and support LGBTQ servicemembers, and work to ensure that LGBTQ veterans are receiving equal the recognition and quality of care they deserve.
