LGBT Equality

Here in Central Florida, we embrace our proud LGBT community – and after the horrific attack on the Pulse nightclub, we all rallied together to support our gay, lesbian, bi and trans brothers and sisters. Our neighbors are of every race, religion, nationality, gender identity, and sexual orientation and we are proud of it. We celebrate it. We believe love is love. That’s what makes us Orlando Strong.

In the Florida Senate, I sponsored legislation to remove the provision in Florida statutes that defined marriage between a man and a woman. I also led the effort to filibuster a bill that would allow discrimination of LGBT couples in the adoption process.

In Congress, I’ll fight to pass the Equality Act to provide nationwide protections against LGBT discrimination in employment, housing, and education – and I will fight every attempt to allow discrimination against our LGBT Americans.
