LGBTQ Equality

Dramatic progress has been made over the past decade for the LGBTQ community, as the Supreme Court swept away DOMA and made marriage equality the law of the land.

Yet more progress needs to be made.

In too many states, it is still legal to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. That is unfair and un-American.

Moreover, the Trump Administration seeks to undermine equal treatment at every turn – with extreme executive orders, legal positions, and judicial appointments.

This is unacceptable.

We can and must do more to protect the rights of gay, trans, and gender non-conforming Americans. We must work to ensure that young people who are trying to be their true selves get the support they need.

When I am elected to Congress, I will support the Equality Act — a federal guarantee of protections for LGBTQ people in employment, housing, and public accommodation.

For 25 years, I have been a common-sense businessman — not a career politician — so I look at things differently. I know about fixing dysfunction. It starts with hard work, a commitment to results, and perseverance — not scoring cheap political points. We can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
