This year’s Baltimore Pride week takes on special significance this year, after the violence in Orlando. To learn more about the events taking place click here: http://baltimorepride.org/
I am proud of the great strides we have made as a nation over recent years when it comes to making sure every American, no matter who they love, is treated equality. We have seen the reversal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell in our military, marriage equally passed on a national level, and just last month President Obama named Stonewall National Monument in New York City the first national monument to LGBT rights.
However, the GOP's recently released platform has been named the most anti-LGBT platform ever. We need to push to make sure that Democrats win in November to ensure the progress we've made in recent years isn't reversed.
