LGBTQ+ Equality

When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, conservative Justice Clarence Thomas signaled that the right to same-sex and interracial marriage could be on the chopping block next. In the Senate, Chuck is leading the fight to enshrine the right to marriage equality and interracial marriage into federal law to against future attacks from the MAGA Supreme Court.

The LGTBQ+ community also still faces unprecedented and unjust discrimination. Many states states don’t have any laws prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, and we’ve seen a wave of state legislatures try to pass despicables bills that ban transgender kids from participating in sports or receiving gender-affirming health care. 

As the proud parent of an LGBTQ+ person, Chuck Schumer believes it’s long past time for the federal government to ban discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community once and for all and pass The Equality Act.
