In a few minutes Amy & I are going to run the Capital City Pride 5K here in Des Moines as we celebrate Iowa’s 10th anniversary of marriage equality. We’re inspired by these victories for the LGBTQ+ community and our country, but we know there’s still a lot of work to do.
This past year, the legislature passed a bill that would prevent public insurance, including Medicaid, from covering the cost of gender reassignment surgery. This is an effort to endanger and devalue the lives of transgender Iowans and we cannot accept it.
We need to sign into law the Equality Act to ensure full civil rights for LGBTQ+ Americans across the country. We must also support organizations like @ACLUiowa who are on the frontlines, fighting for equality. Today as we celebrate, consider donating: aclu-ia.org/en/donate
