Anaheim, CA – Bao Nguyen released the following statement after House Republican leadership used a parliamentary tactic that made their Members change their votes, shutting down an amendment that would protect the LGBTQ community. As a gay man myself, I know firsthand how hard it can be to grow up LGBTQ. We face discrimination in so many ways, just because of who we happen to love.
Today in the House, we had a historic chance to end institutionalized discrimination.
