From the Democratic National Committee:
Everyone deserves a workplace free of harassment and discrimination. Today is a historic victory for the nation and for the LGBTQ+ community; a victory of dignity over discrimination, of love over hate, of equality over prejudice.
But while we celebrate today, our fight is far from over. The Trump administration’s rollback just three days ago of anti-discrimination protections the LGBTQ+ community secured under the Obama-Biden administration is just the latest example of the threat Republicans still pose to LGBTQ+ people.
Democrats will always fight for equal rights for all LGBTQ+ Americans, including for the trans women of color who bear the brunt of the hate and violence against the LGBTQ+ community.
None of this progress would have been possible without the unrelenting courage of countless LGBTQ+ Americans, including Aimee Stephens, whose bravery and strength to live authentically changed our country for the better.
We will keep fighting for heroes like Aimee, and for all Americans striving for the promise of equality, dignity, and justice — no matter who they are, who they love, or how they identify.
