ROSEN STATEMENT ON LGBT PRIDE MONTH
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement to commemorate the beginning of LGBT Pride Month:
“Today, as we celebrate LGBT Pride Month, we honor the legacy of leaders who dedicated their lives to ensuring that all people are treated equal, regardless of who they love. Over the years we’ve accomplished marriage equality, repealed discriminatory policies like "Don't Ask Don't Tell," and in Nevada, we've signed a bill into law protecting LGBT youth from the dangerous and inhumane practice of conversion therapy.
Despite our progress, members of the LGBT community continue to face an assault on their rights under the current administration. From revoking discrimination protections for transgender children in public schools to attempting to render the LGBT community invisible in the census, we still have a long way to go to stop acts of discrimination. Hate has no place in the vibrant, multicultural country we all call home. That’s why I will continue to promote policies like the Equality Act to create more open, loving, and tolerant communities for all.”
