Our team and Granite Staters across New Hampshire celebrated Pride on Saturday here in Portsmouth. The streets were filled with people celebrating our incredible LGBTQ+ community. It was an afternoon filled with music, dancing, festivities, joy, and hope.
I was proud to work on transgender inclusion policies when I served at the Pentagon in the Obama Administration, guaranteeing that any American had the right to serve if they could meet the military’s standards, regardless of their gender identity, sexual orientation, or who they love.
I’m proud that New Hampshire has led the way on LGBTQ+ rights, including our most recent victory in banning discrimination based on gender identity.
June is a month of celebration, but also a time to recognize how far we still have to go.
This Pride Month, let’s celebrate all of the progress we’ve made in fighting discrimination and commit to holding our country to a higher standard.
I will always fight for LGBTQ+ Granite Staters.
Happy Pride Month!
