LGBTQ Rights

I believe that we must continue to fight for equality for LGBTQ individuals. I firmly believe in marriage equality and supported the Supreme Court’s landmark decision legalizing gay marriage in 2015. I was also the lead sponsor of the Community Safety Act (2013)1, which was one of the largest expansions of LGBTQ protections in recent years. As Public Advocate, my office will always be a place that will advocate for equal rights and dignity for those who identify as part of the LGBTQ community.
