I support marriage and gender equality for all people. I will work to protect our right to marry the people we love and expand rights for gay and transgender people in the workplace and in public spaces. In the 2015 legislature, several Republicans attempted to restrict transgender people’s use of public restrooms, an act which frankly borders on cartoon super villainy. I will staunchly oppose any legislation that restricts people’s freedom to live their lives with dignity. As Americans, it is the responsibility of each of us to treat these oppressive influences with the disdain and dismissal they deserve; none of us are free unless all of us are.
