LGBTQ and Equality

No one should be discriminated against because of who they are or who they love. As the first openly gay member of Congress from New Hampshire, I am committed to fighting for the dignity and equality of all Americans.

As a Co-Chair of the LGBTQ Equality Caucus, I will fight to get the Equality Act signed into law, which would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. I  will also continue to stand up to the Trump Administration's efforts to roll-back the progress made by the LGBTQ community, including the trans military ban. America's strength and potential is rooted in our nation’s diversity, and it is time that our laws reflect that.
