You may have seen the recent hateful comments made by our Lieutenant Governor about homosexuality and transgenderism.

I wrote to you in June promising our LGBTQ+ friends, neighbors, and colleagues that I will continue to pursue equality, not just during Pride Month, but every month.

So I want to take the opportunity today to renew my commitment to ensure that all people in North Carolina enjoy the same rights and opportunities.

I am proud to be an ally to the LGBTQ+ community. I am proud to have fought in the State Senate to protect gay and transgender state employees from discrimination. I am proud to have sued the Trump Administration when it tried to eliminate protections for the LGBTQ community in health care. I am proud to have fought for protections for LGBTQ children in our schools. And I am proud to support the passage of the Equality Act in Congress to update our civil rights laws and prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Too many Republican officials in our state, like our Lieutenant Governor, continue to espouse a vision for North Carolina of division.

In North Carolina, we know all too well how damaging discrimination can be to people’s lives, our state’s reputation, and our economy. Unfortunately, we’ve been down this road before, and it takes us backwards, not forwards.

We must do more to protect LGBTQ people in health care, in employment, in public accommodations, and in every other place in which we live and work. If you agree, I hope you’ll add your name and stand with me in this fight. [[link removed]]

STAND WITH JOSH [[link removed]]

There is no place for hate in North Carolina. Every single person in our state deserves respect — not only because it's right, but because it's necessary to build the kind of future we want. I will always stand up for the people of this state.



P.S. If you’d like to support an organization on the front lines in the fight for equality in our state, I hope you’ll consider chipping in to Equality NC:
