Congressman Ted Lieu

Representing the 33rd District of California

LGBT Equality

In between press interviews, Congressman Lieu joins LGBT activists on the steps of the Supreme Court to celebrate the court's historic ruling on marriage equality.

"The LGBT movement has made incredible strides and achieved victories that seemed impossible even five or ten years ago.  However, there is great work left to be done as we continue to combat ignorance and bigotry. LGBT Americans still face significant barriers to marriage equality, equal access to education, and strong protections against employment discrimination. Our country’s founding principles of liberty and equality will not be fully realized until we eliminate injustices such as conversion therapy and discrimination based on orientation or gender identity. We must engage in a tireless mssion to secure a better future for all Americans, no matter who they love."

Most of the ISIS attacks have been suicide or car bombs—with the noted exception of the apparently ISIS-inspired mass shooting at the gay Pulse nightclub in Orlando on June 12.
