Joe Biden offers a powerful rallying cry to LGBTQ people

“For four years Donald Trump has tried to rollback the protections for the LGBT community, denying transgender Americans a choice to serve our country, letting adoption agencies and homeless shelters and public services discriminate, turning a blind eye to the epidemic of violence transgender women of color.

You deserve a partner in the White House to fight with conviction and win the battles ahead. Together we’ll pass the Equality Act, protect LGBTQ youth, expand access to health care, support LGBTQ workers, win full rights for transgender Americans, recommit to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic by 2025, advance LGBT rights around the globe, not just at home.”Joe Biden speaking LGBTQ voters at the HRC’s Unite for Equality Live event.
