IssuesLBGTQ+ Rights

Over the course of the last 20 years there have been extraordinary advancements in the field of LGBTQ+ rights. However, these advancements have neither been sufficient nor are fully secured. The Movement Advancement Project, an organization that analyzes the status of LGBTQ+ equality in every state, ranks Maryland only 17th in the country for LGBTQ+ equality. Earlier this month, the Carroll County School Board banned LGBTQ Pride flags from school property. And with the Supreme Court poised to withdraw constitutional protections for reproductive rights, we cannot take the constitutional protection of same-sex marriage for granted.
Maryland needs an Attorney General that is a tenacious, relentless, and inspired advocate for LGBTQ+ rights. Throughout my career, I have been an advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, and my support of same-sex marriage’s passage in 2011 is one of my proudest moments. I was proud to call out the moral cowardice then, and I will be proud to rebuke intolerance towards the LGBTQ+ as Attorney General.

As Attorney General I will:

  • Fully enforce the Inclusive Schools Act
  • Support Trans Rights
  • Join other attorneys general to advocate for LGBTQ+ rights in federal court
  • Repeal antiquated HIV criminalization
  • Working closely with the LGBTQ+ community
