LGBTQI

Protect What You Love

 

The discrimination posed upon the LGBTQ+ community is disheartening. For years, something as minor as one's sexual orientation or gender identity has become a debated topic. This is unjust and it must end now!

Our LGBTQ+ citizens face hatred, misunderstandings, assumptions, fear, and helplessness every day. In many communities, these feelings are intensified by hateful family members and neighbors.

Bills such North Carolina's House Bill 2, which wrongfully restricted which bathroom transgender people could use and House Bill 780, which attempted to ban same-sex marriage, only add to the stress our allies face.

As your Congresswoman, I will protect all members of the LGBTQ+ community. Discriminatory bills, actions, people, and groups will be denounced and fought against!

I have been blessed to have a big brother who is openly gay and happily married. I've watched first-hand the struggle that people in this community face with self-love and self-acceptance. All Americans need the unconditional love of the community and the freedom to love openly without fear for their safety. 

My goal is to allow everyone, regardless of whether one is a member of the LGBTQ+ community or not, to live happy, healthy, and loving lives. It is time for everyone to love each other - and the movement starts now!

To our friends who suffer from discrimination, I am your ally. You can count on me to protect you!
