#LGBTQ Americans are NOT going back in the closet. Don’t these senators have anything productive to do, like vote for the House-passed #EqualityAct?

As we celebrate the Lesbian Day of Visibility, we are reminded that the work for equality is not yet finished. I urge the Senate to join the House in passing the #EqualityAct.

From Sen. Merkley, representing Oregon
Quote

Some politicians are waging unceasing attacks on LGBTQ+ folks—particularly trans youth. These stories are heartbreaking. Everyone should feel loved, valued, and welcomed in their communities. Trans people should not have to fight for their right to exist.

I will continue to work in the Senate to pass the #EqualityAct and make federal non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ+ Americans part of federal law. And I will do everything I can to #ProtectTransKids in Oregon and around the country.
