LGBTQ+ Rights Policy Statement

To mark the last days of #PrideMonth I am proud to release my policy statement on LGBTQ+ issues. Thank you Josh Alburtus for the help with the final draft.

I am a proud ally of the LGBTQ+ community and once in Congress I will support legislation and policy to combat all forms of inequality and oppression. The recent recognition by the World Health Organization that being transgender is not a mental illness is a tremendous step forward, but the fact that this decision merits recognition reveals the terrible history of discrimination directed towards the LGBTQ+ community.
