Jerry Nadler’s sure feeling celebratory today. The New York politico and some of his bipartisan pals met in Washington today to launch the Congressional Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality Caucus, on which Nadler will act as vice-chair under homo-politicos Barney Frank and Tammy Baldwin.
From the press release:
â€œI am proud to serve as a vice-chair on the bipartisan Congressional Caucus on LGBT Equality,â€ said Rep. Nadler. â€œMany of us in Congress have been fighting hard for LGBT equality for years, and this Caucus will help provide a unified voice on these important issues. I am confident that with this new Caucus we can, someday soon, live in an America where true equality is a fact of life for the LGBT community.â€
The mission of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus is to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT equality. By serving as a resource for Members of Congress, their staff, and the public on LGBT issues, the Caucus will work toward the extension of equal rights, the repeal of discriminatory laws, the elimination of hate-motivated violence, and the improved health and well being for all regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
Let the conservative outcry begin!
