🌈 Thread on the #LGBT record of Cory Booker
2012:Mayor Booker "Dear God: We should not be putting civil rights issues to a popular vote subject to the sentiments or passions of the day, No minority should have their civil rights subject to the majority"
Booker is so correct on this take. Amendment 1 and Prop 8 were extremely painful for #LGBT people. We woke up the next day looked around and forever wondered who voted for us, who against. The majority should never never vote on minority rights.
Booker goes on to talk about #LGBT Americans being second class citizens. "Its ridiculous and offensive we are even having this debate, it should have been done years ago." 2012

Hillary went to Pulse instead of Wisconsin.

She chose to support #lgbt in a time of extreme distress and terror for us.

Stop whining that she missed a rally in Wisconsin because she comforted us.

Leaders comfort people who need it, when the need it.

My Adoption advice for lesbians: Hurry up. Fascist theocrats are attempting to take away our adoption rights.
“federal legislation could be on the way. In July 2018, Republican representatives introduced a bill that would protect adoption agencies with state or federal contracts who discriminate on religious or moral grounds nationwide. “
The fight over gay adoption parallels the fight over marriage. Republicans have long fought our right to adopt and have “legitimate “ families. Marriage and adoption to them made us “normal” so they fought it with a passion. #queerpol
