Equality

 
I support full equality for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender individuals. I support legislation to ban workplace discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation and believe those protections were valuable additions to the re-enactment of the Violence Against Women Act passed in the last Congress.

I also strongly support marriage equality. Everyone must have the right to marry, regardless of sexual orientation, and to pursue a family. I will work to block legislation seeking to ban the rights of same sex couples.
