LGBTQI+ Rights

Despite significant inroads over the last decade, members of the LGBTQI+ community continue to face discrimination in all facets of life. We can do better.

I support the Equality Act to provide non-discrimation protections for anyone identifying as LGBTQI+.

I oppose the use of Medicaid funds to pay for harmful practices like conversion therapy. 

I support amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and and gender identity in public accommodations and updating the public spaces and services covered in the law to include retail stores, banks, legal services, healthcare provides, and transportation services.
