LGBTQ Rights

LGBTQ Rights

Everyone deserves to be comfortable with their body, sexuality, and relationships — free from discrimination and persecution.

All people, including LGBTQ people, need high-quality, affordable health care, education, and information that affirm their identity and their sexuality — as well as the freedom to make their own decisions about their health and lives without discrimination.

Everyone deserves to be comfortable with their body, sexuality, and relationships — free from discrimination and persecution.

But the Trump-Pence administration is working against these values, and has a record of rolling back rights for LGBTQ people. This includes trying to reinstate a ban on trans people joining the military, supporting court cases arguing that anti-gay discrimination is legal, and overturning rules protecting trans people in the workplace.

“LGBTQ” is not a monolith — the needs of these communities differ. So whether someone identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, genderqueer, gender expansive, gender non-conforming, non-binary, or something else, they deserve to have their identity validated, and to have the support and resources they need to live their best lives.
